San Diego Financial Literacy Center

VA Cancer Survivorship, Prevention & Education Event

The SDFLC was honored to return for the fourth year in a row as the financial education resource at the VA San Diego Healthcare System’s “Cancer Survivorship, Prevention & Education” event on June 20th. Along with the other organizational resources for veterans, the event featured great presentations and demonstrations on everything from laughing yoga to updates on the scientific advancements in early lung cancer detection technology. “This is one of our favorite events because there’s always so much great information being shared and we hear a lot of inspirational stories,” SDFLC Community Outreach Coordinator Felipe Arevalo said. “Sadly, most of us have someone in our lives who has been affected by cancer, but there’s hope in the room here. It’s also great to see the amount of care our veterans receive here in San Diego.”
