Living Well with and Beyond Cancer 2021
Irish Cancer Society’s Annual national conference took place online on Wednesday, 2 June and Thursday, 3 June.
A range of speakers shared their experiences, stories and expert knowledge on living well after a cancer diagnosis through a mix of virtual presentations, interactive workshops and Q&A sessions. The last year has been difficult for people affected by cancer and the uncertainty and isolation continues for many.

The conference recordings look at topics like self-care, healthy eating, exercise as well as advances in cancer treatment.
