Teleconference re Work Life Issues
Making a decision about work during breast cancer treatment, continuing to work, returning to work, wondering about stopping work, dealing with colleagues and supervisors.....There are many issues and concerns about this part of our lives. Most of us depend on our work life for income, insurance, social contacts, and a sense of personal well-being and satisfaction. A diagnosis of breast cancer stresses all of these factors.
Living Beyond Breast Cancer is offering a free teleconference on this topic:
Working Matters: What You Need to Know, on July 14 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT).
Renowned attorney Rodney N. Warner, Esq. of the Legal Clinic for the Disabled, Inc., will discuss the impact a cancer diagnosis can have on your work life.

Mr. Warner will also discuss ways to negotiate conflict and handle workplace discrimination when it occurs. During this teleconference, you will learn useful strategies for communicating with your colleagues to improve your working environment and provide a smooth transition into the workplace after an extended absence.
