April 13 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Presentation by Tony Leahy, J.D., Executive Director for Consumer Education Training Services (CENTS), a statewide nonprofit organization founded to help people protect their financial situations.  Tony will speak about the CENTS special financial education programs to help patients and their families address money challenges related to medical situations including cancer—training developed in collaboration with the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.  Their program pairs patients with Certified Financial Planners and the Patient Advocate Foundation, to strategically and practically address ‘financial toxicity’—the negative health effects of the high and potentially overwhelming financial burdens often associated with major illnesses.  https://centsprogram.org/
