Podcast: Happy (Social Distanced) Holidays! Advice on Creating Safe and Special Celebrations

Care Packages for Cancer Patients

(Left) Mari Montesano, LCSW, and Kelley Crusius, NP-C, often help cancer patients weight the risks and benefits of gathering with family and friends. There’s no easy answer for everyone.

This is the first episode in a series with oncology social worker, Mari Montesano. Mari is chatting with nurse practitioner Kelley Crusius about what advice she’s giving her patients in the CMH-OHSU Knight Cancer Collaborative on how to navigate the questions of whether and how to gather with family during the holiday season. This is definitely a tough question for many people right now.

Mari and Kelley share some great ideas on how to make this unusual holiday season special. We hope you’ll be inspired to get creative with your holiday plans!
