Ask the Doctor Series
Dr. Yasmin Asvat, PhD
Sept. 23, 2015
6 - 8 p.m.
Diagnostic biopsies, scans, chemotherapy, surgery, radiation therapy, blood work, more scans, additional surgeries, countless blood work... Cancer treatment takes a great toll on the body. Too often, addressing the emotional aspects of a cancer diagnosis occurs when the treatment and follow-up schedule begins to slow down. So often we hear, “it finally hit me all that I had been through after I finished my treatment.” Taking care of your emotional and psychological well being is essential to healthy living.
Join us as we discuss steps you can take to be emotionally well throughout your treatment and survivorship. Dr. Asvat is a clinical psychologist who works at the Siteman Counseling Service at the Siteman Cancer Center.
Dr. Asvat will speak for a few minutes, offer guidance and insight, and then answer your questions. Write down your questions and bring them with you to the meeting. We look forward to seeing you soon.
Becky Kaufman Lynn, MD, FACOG
Obstetrician and Gynecologist
Oct. 28, 2015
6 - 8 p.m.
We have all heard the phrase, I am finding my new normal. But what does that approach really mean, especially in regard to our sexuality and sexual activity. Sexuality is an important factor in quality of life for many women. Dr. Lynn will offer advice and guidance from a gynecologist’s perspective. She will discuss sexuality and gynecologic health issues for women who are receiving or who have completed cancer treatment.
Dr. Lynn is an Obstetrician and Gynecologist and faculty member at St. Louis University. Her gynecology practice is located at St. Mary’s Hospital. Don’t forget to write down your questions and bring them with you to the meeting.
