During this “age of quarantine,” we are all feeling a little extra isolated from our cancer buddies, so YACC’s program director, Karine, will host our YACC Web: Talks, a series of weekly moments of connection. Some weeks it may be just Karine, other weeks she may bring along a friend or two.
The presentations may have themes, activities, and engagement and will take place via Zoom (at least for now). Currently, there is no limit to the number of people who can attend.
As we continue into quarantine, feelings of isolation can become increasingly common. In this session, we will discuss the research behind the unique benefits of connection to the community and how this relates to the AYA experience.
Ashley recently graduated with a Master’s of Public Health in Epidemiology from the University of Toronto. Her research interests include cancer epidemiology and prior to entering the research world, Ashley was involved in creating, facilitating and evaluating peer support programming.
