COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) -Baylor Scott & White-College Station is now hosting a new series of cancer education classes.

Cancer affects many areas of a patient and their families lives. Whether that means physically, emotionally, or spiritually. Baylor Scott & White told KBTX they wanted to create a safe space to help navigate their cancer journey.

Dr. Juddi Yeh, Medical Oncologist/Hematologist, said the next class they have to offer is covering symptom management.

“We wanted to be able to support patients through their cancer journey and we know that a lot of times its overwhelming for caregivers,” said Dr. Yeh. “So patients are welcome, caregivers, people who have not really had any experience with cancer and community members. We also hope people can enjoy fellowship with each other.”

Dr. Yeh said each month people should look forward to a different subject within the cancer education class. As well as different class topics, different professionals with Baylor Scott & White will be teaching each class.

The next class is being held on Sept. 21 on the Baylor Scott & White main campus or zoom at 4:30 p.m. until 5:30 p.m.
