Thank you to all of our volunteers!

April is volunteer appreciation month! With a small staff and numerous events, Gilda's Club South Florida relies on its volunteers for a number of activities. Whether its weekly volunteering during Wednesday night support groups, monthly help during educational programs, stuffing envelopes or assisting during one of our signature events, our volunteers are an extremely important part of our organization. 
A special thank you to each volunteer that has taken time from their busy schedule to help us here at Gilda's Club! We appreciate all you do on our behalf.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please visit our website or call us at 954-763-6776.
14th Annual Day of Research & Hope on May 7
The annual Day of Research & Hope conference began as a way for Gilda's Club to share the latest in cancer innovations with the community.  Each year a panel of experts from area hospitals is assembled to share  their expertise in oncology care, psychology/psychiatry, and integrative care.  

This year, Research & Hope will take place on Saturday, May 7th at Nova Southeastern University. The keynote address will be given by Leslie Klein, Clinical Dietitian, from Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, and will review the limited evidence for the direct role of nutrition on cancer risk.   An expert panel will follow with doctors from Memorial Cancer Center, Broward Health and Miami Cancer Center.  

The 14th Annual Day of Research & Hope is hosted by Nova Southeastern University and presented by Memorial Cancer Institute. Thank you to additional sponsors, Broward Health and Miami Cancer Institute

The conference is open to the public and offers free continuing education credits to nurses and mental health practitioners. RSVP is required at 954-763-6776.
