Broadcasted on Thursday, April 19th, 2018
1:00pm – 2:00pm ET

About the Webinar:

Oncologist Dr. Rob Rutledge reviewed the book Radical Remissions: Surviving cancer against all odds by Kelly Turner, PhD, and the nine key attitudes and behaviours found in people who have undergone a spontaneous remission.
Though not promising a cure, Dr. Rutledge shows there is much wisdom in adopting this proactive approach to a cancer diagnosis which can profoundly improve one’s health and happiness.
