Be Strong Therapy Services is the proud 2020 recipient of the Florida Physical Therapy Association's Catherine E. Patla Community Awareness Grant. This esteemed grant is administered as a commitment to assisting Florida physical therapists in their relations with the public and patients through community awareness of the physical therapy profession. Our submission titled “ Community-Based Education: Physical and Occupational Therapy’s Role in the Cancer Continuum" consisted of a proposal for quarterly lunch and learns surrounding cancer rehab and a workshop course on cancer and intimacy.
Our 2nd workshop on April 9th focused on how rehab can help after a cancer diagnosis. We had both in-person, socially distanced participants and Zoom attendants.
Participants learned what cancer rehab is and why a women going through breast cancer would benefit from therapy services. We had a great discussion on what different side effects may happen as a result of chemo, radiation, or surgery and how therapy can help each.
