Hundreds Visit the Cancer Learning Center and Wellness Center at Open House
The Huntsman Cancer Learning Center (CLC) and Linda B. and Robert B. Wiggins Wellness Center open house was a great success! On July 16, the CLC and Wellness Center hosted an open house to acquaint Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) patients, faculty, and staff with our new combined office and treatment space. We also showed off our great resources, programs, and services available to HCI patients and the general public.
Janet Bloch, ANP, Wellness Center director, welcomes Ben Tanner, Huntsman Cancer Hospital director of clinical operations, to the open house.
More than 300 people stopped by. They entered prize drawings; learned how to make delicious, healthy smoothies; attended a yoga demonstration;
played a cancer trivia game; attended guided imagery sessions and fitness classes; and browsed our comprehensive collection of cancer resources.
If you paid us a visit that day, please stop by again soon. If you have not had a chance to come in, please do—we would love to get to know you.
