Cancer-related cognitive impairment (commonly known as “chemobrain” or “chemo-fog”) are common concerns for many patients with cancers. Symptoms may include challenges with word-finding, multi-tasking, concentration, or short-term memory. During this presentation, Dr. Asher will reviews factors that may fuel these symptoms and provide an overview of lifestyle strategies to support recovery from these cognitive challenges.
Dr. Arash Asher is Director of Cancer Survivorship and Rehabilitation at Cedars Sinai Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute where he runs a dynamic clinic for patients and survivors. Dr. Asher has integrated a number of innovative cancer rehabilitation programs, including art therapy, personalized exercise regimes, and novel cognitive rehabilitation for “chemobrain.” Thank you to CSC South Bay for hosting this program. Attendance will be shared with CSC South Bay and CSC.
