Spring into Wellness—Free Online 4-session Creative Arts Workshop for Breast Cancer Survivors. Register by March 31.

The Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Program is offering a free four-session creative arts support group—Spring into Wellness–empowering breast cancer survivors to express themselves using art. This therapeutic zoom program offers a safe place to communicate thoughts, feelings, concerns, problems, hopes and dreams. The professional staff guides participants through different exercises and discussions helping to find ways to gain personal insight and develop new coping skills. Facilitators are Angela M. Papalia, LMSW, Assistant Director for the Adelphi Breast Cancer Program, and Kimberly Newman, BFA, Communications and Marketing Coordinator for the Adelphi Breast Cancer Program.

The workshop will take place on four consecutive Thursdays—April 13, April 20, April 27 and May 4, 2023—from 10 am to 11:30 am. All four sessions start with a relaxation/breathing exercise. Then participants will complete several creative projects focusing on mindfulness and spirituality. These projects will help reduce negativity and will be self-soothing resulting in stress reduction. 

There is no charge but registration is required and members must commit to attending all four sessions. Registration ends on March 31. 

This group is provided by the Adelphi Breast Cancer Program and supported by grants from the Alpern Family Foundation, Marilyn Lichtman Foundation and New York State.

For information, questions and to register, call Angela M. Papalia, LMSW at (516) 877-4329 or email
