Cancer Education Services
Cancer education at Overlake is available to inpatients and outpatients, as well as their families and caregivers. Education covers a wide spectrum from prevention and early detection to diagnosis and treatment and coping with the realities of the disease.
The Cancer Resource Center provides information in a number of formats: written information, videos, classes, screenings, support groups and community referrals. For information, please call 425-688-5986.
Look Good... Feel Better
This is a free class on skin and hair care, cosmetics, hair loss and nutrition. Samples and makeovers are offered to help patients adjust to the changes they may be experiencing during their treatments.
Members of our staff frequently speak in the community and can be requested to present to various groups. The staff can cover a range of topics including prevention, early detection, treatment and survivorship.
Skin Cancer Screening
Once a year, in the spring, Overlake has a skin cancer screening day at the hospital. You can come and be examined for signs of skin cancer by a health care professional. You can also learn prevention and warning signs.
