Survive and Thrive will present the first annual Pathways to Wellness event from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., October 28, at the Hilton Naples. This free event will assist those affected by cancer, including patients, survivors, loved ones and healthcare professionals.

Featured activities include yoga for cancer classes led by Survive and Thrive Executive Director Wendy Campbell; keynote speaker oncologist James C. Salwitz, M.D., discussing survivorship and the importance of integrative care after treatment; a group discussion on the growth and intimacy in relationships for those touched by cancer, led by Clinical Psychologist Meredith B. Frankel; a lecture by holistic doctor Brian Thornburg, DO, on the importance of gut health in reducing inflammation and cancer; and Sue Lovett, a registered yoga teacher, leading an acupressure self-care workshop and closing group meditation with healing sound therapy.
