The eighth annual Lloyd and Ardis Peterson Cancer Symposium will be held Nov. 9 from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the Wedgewood Cove Golf Club, 2200 W. Ninth St., in Albert Lea. The symposium will focus on managing change.

The journey after receiving a cancer diagnosis is life-altering for the patient and the caregiver. The symposium will provide information and insights on how to manage the fear of the unknown, and how to care for oneself while coping with life’s changes. Quinten Bissonette, a Mayo Clinic nurse manager, and Kari Berit, author, radio host and consultant, will discuss embracing change and caring for the caregiver.

This free symposium, which is sponsored by the Lloyd and Ardis Peterson Family Foundation, is open to the public. Breakfast will be served.

Space is limited, and registration is required. Call Mayo Clinic Health System at 507-668-2300 to register.
