The Cancer Learning Center Welcomes The Cancer Wellness Center!
June was an exciting time for the Cancer Learning Center (CLC). Not only did we finish a small remodeling project in the library, we also were joined by the Linda B. and Robert B. Wiggins Wellness Center on the first floor of Huntsman Cancer Institute.
The next time you come into the CLC, you will see some new faces and some new programs. You can meet with a registered dietitian and walk right over to check out a cookbook from the learning center collection, or read and relax after working out with one of the exercise specialists. You may even wander into a yoga class.
