What does Gilda’s Club Offer?
The Institute of Medicine has confirmed that comprehensive cancer care must include emotional and social support for the entire family. Our program offers something for everyone.
Support Groups are facilitated by licensed mental health professionals and provide an opportunity
to meet with others, and share wisdom and firsthand experiences. We offer a range of groups to meet your specific needs. Participants must be placed into a support group to ensure that the group members can relate to each other.
Educational Lectures provide access to valuable information including medical, legal,
financial, and other cancer specific topics. These lectures are open to the public and do not require membership to Gilda’s Club NYC. Select lectures are recorded and made available on our website. Click here to view the archive.
Healthy Lifestyle Workshops are offered to enrich your well-being and promote self-discovery.
They include a broad range of body-movement, stress reduction, and creative arts workshops.
Social Events are held throughout the year and welcome you to meet others from our special community and build friendships.
