Addressing cancer: Resources for employees and supervisors

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease focuses on education, prevention and supporting people and families. Vanderbilt will be offering several events this month that are in line with this important mission. Learn more.

In addition to these events, it is important to be aware of resources for those touched by cancer in our workplace. The Work/Life Connections–EAP article “Addressing Cancer: Resources for Employees and Supervisors” offers a quick guide to finding various types of support for employees with cancer and for supervisors working to address the needs of their employees.

If you or a co-worker is in need of more direct support or help, Work/Life Connections–EAP can help direct you in this often daunting process. Our licensed clinicians can assist you in connecting with resources in a confidential and supportive context. If you would like to make an appointment, please call 615-936-1327 to find a time that best matches your schedule and needs.
