Sacred Heart Rehabilitation will host a free comprehensive, evidence-based discussion on symptoms, side effects and treatment options from cancer diagnosis through survivorship.

Oncology and speech-language pathologist, Stephanie Borg, will discuss the latest evidence-based treatment options for head and neck cancers including the importance of scheduling pre-treatment appointments to prepare for chemotherapy, radiation, and surgical intervention. 

Oncology physical therapists, Leslie Moskal, DPT and Stephanie Borst, DPT, will discuss how to improve symptoms during and after cancer treatments, including fatigue, decreased balance, dizziness, pain, lymphedema, and losses of mobility or range of motion.  

The overall seminar objective is to provide seminar participants with information regarding treatment options and resources available, self-management techniques, and parameters for activity to help improve quality of life across the cancer spectrum.

Rehabilitation Services at Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast provide the expertise to properly diagnose and manage your rehabilitation needs. The center also provides specialized care, troubleshooting, and education for patients that have conditions effecting their overall balance and mobility. A multidisciplinary team of physical therapy experts work together to strengthen and preserve mobility, while educating the patient and preventing future falls and injuries.
