Dr. Jay Burton is a primary care physician and a cancer survivor. After battling leukemia, he discovered there were not enough resources for people to help them after treatment, and established Survivor Journeys to fill that need. Survivor Journey is a non-profit cancer program that offers support groups, a mentoring program and professional development workshops.
This weekend, the organization will host a Cancer Survivorship 101 workshop at Max’s Tavern in Springfield. Carolee McGrath sat down with Dr. Burton to learn more about the program and the upcoming workshop.
