First Fridays presentation to focus on the sexual self of cancer survivors

The October 2013 First Fridays presentation, sponsored by The Department of Humanities and The Doctors Kienle Center for Humanistic Medicine at Penn State College of Medicine, is scheduled for noon on Oct. 4, in C2860 at the Penn State Hershey Medical Center. Sage Bolte, oncology counselor, Life with Cancer, INOVA Fair Oaks Hospital Fairfax, Va., will present “The Sexual Self of Cancer Survivors: Assessing & Addressing a Quality of Life Issue.”

With cancer survivorship on the rise and those with advanced disease living longer, health care professionals must be prepared to address all areas of quality of life. This includes the very real needs patients experience around changes in the sexual self after a cancer diagnosis. This talk will identify how cancer impacts on sexuality and what to do about it.

This presentation is free and open to the public, with no pre-registration required. For more information, call the Department of Humanities at 717-531-8778 or email Claire de Boer at
