12:10 pm Discussing Survivorship
Speaker: Dr. Katie Klingberg, Family Physician
Survivorship took on new meaning for Katie. Where previous to 2010, she had been the physician counseling her patients, these days she relates differently having been the worried patient, the bald mom, the sick spouse, the tired friend.
Now almost 10 years later, she remains passionate about living life with humor and humility as one whose life remains forever touched by cancer. She looks forward to sharing her story and energy to survive.
