The view of cancer care environments is unique to the perspective of individual, be they patient or caregiver or architect. Those perspectives may be shifted through their experiences. The Cancer Care Environments series concludes with the perspectives of cancer survivors Alan Wilson, a Chicago architect and cancer design specialist as well as a cancer survivor; Meg Gaines, founder of Center for Patient Partnerships in Madison, WI, and a cancer survivor as well; and oncologist Dr. Julian Schink, department chief of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Women's health for Spectrum Medical Group in Grand Rapids, MI. Each will present their own experiences with cancer care environments, as well as participate in a roundtable discussion about the role that the many aspects of design play in contributing to the healing process. Refreshments, including lunch, will be served. There is no charge to attend, but reservations are requested. Series description: Cancer Care Environments: The Architecture of Healing and Renewal #6.
