COVID-19 update: We recognize the importance of our classes and support groups and have worked to transition many of our in-person events to Zoom videoconferencing. Please visit our calendar below. If a class does not say "CANCELED," please see the description or contact the group facilitator directly for information on how to participate via videoconferencing.
Patient and Family Support Services is following all recommended social distancing guidelines made by San Diego County and University officials. If and when it is safe to resume in-person meetings, we will make every effort to ensure the classes are available to participants both in person and via Zoom.
Cancer Services at UC San Diego Health offers many support groups, classes and workshops to address the emotional, social, physical, and spiritual issues that can affect ones well-being before, during and after cancer treatment. Although it can be difficult to talk about these important topics, addressing them can actually improve both cancer care and outcomes. Because each person’s needs are individual, we offer a wide range of options.
All events are open to the community. Most classes provide general information and support; however, some may have information specifically related to services provided by UC San Diego Health. All events are
free to all participants.
