A group of people holding hands with arms raised in unity.

Emotional well-being and mental health concerns can arise when sexual health issues such as pain with intimacy, screening tests or other are experienced. Such issues commonly affect cancer survivors and are often underserved.

During this one day retreat, participants will engage with Jessica Bell, PA-C, of Samaritan Gynecology & Surgical Associates, who specializes in sexual medicine. Vikki Fuhrman, somatics coach and bodyworker will focus on the healing process of stress, burnout and pain (physical and mental). Erika La Vella, DO, of Samaritan Weight Management Institute will present before lunch and discuss the mind, gut, brain and body connections.

Information about anatomy, sexual health and mindfulness-based interventions will be discussed, in a supportive and welcoming environment. Participants will leave with tangible tools to support the topics covered.
