Knowledge is power, and that’s certainly true for colon cancer. The more you know, the better you can battle. That's why Mount Carmel offers a host of educational resources to not only help you learn about the disease, but give you the strength and support you need to beat it. Those resources include:
We host a wide range of classes and events for patients and family members, which include a variety of educational programs on topics of interest, and even yoga.
Mount Carmel has developed a number of printed materials for you to read and review, including:
Our family room-style resource library at Jan’s Place at Mount Carmel St. Ann’s is a great place to do research on the Internet, view educational DVDs or read a book. Our sizable collection of cancer support materials, sponsored and supported by the American Cancer Society, is also available for check-out. Patient resource libraries are also available in the Siegel Center at Mount Carmel East and in the Health Sciences Library at Mount Carmel West.
