The GW Cancer Institute's Thriving After Cancer (TAC) Program offers comprehensive quality care that addresses long-term health care needs to the increasing number of cancer survivors, including those who had cancer as children. The TAC Program focuses on survivors' medical needs, manages late effects of treatment, and helps cancer survivors attain the best quality of life.
Cancer survivors who participate in a Thriving After Cancer program gain knowledge and information that can help them understand and deal with future health risks before they become problems. Experts from the GW Cancer Institute (GWCI), the GW Medical Faculty Associates (MFA), Children's National Health System and the GW SPHHS Department of Exercise Science assist and educate participants about how to:
- Take good care of themselves
- Prevent future health issues
- Understand the impact that cancer can have on future health
