Discover & Recharge During Special Programs This Month

Tuesday, February 27, 2018 - 9:49am

Whether you’re a patient or caregiver, April is a great month to discover some of the many programs Roswell Park has to offer and to recharge your spirit. Please join us for these special events:

Patient/Caregiver Orientation

If you’re a new patient — or the caregiver of a new patient — stop by the Patient/Caregiver Orientation on Thursday, April 5, or Monday, April 16, from 10-11:30 a.m. in the hospital lobby. Staff from 10 Roswell Park departments will be on hand to tell you about the types of support we offer, including nutrition counseling, rehabilitation services, our Artists-in-Residence program, Pastoral Care, Social Work support, survivorship services, and many others.

While you’re there, you can get help with registering and setting up your Patient Portal account. Pick up some brochures and giveaways, and enjoy free refreshments as you browse the tables.

The event is cosponsored by Office of the Patient & Family Experience and the Patient Education Department.

For information about future orientation programs, please visit the online Roswell Park calendar or call the Resource Center for Patients & Families at 716-845-8659.
