TWU’s Lipoma serves as delegate at the Lance Armstrong Foundation’s LIVESTRONG Summit

10/27/06


DENTON — Joanna Lipoma, clinical instructor for the Texas Woman’s University School of Occupational Therapy, will serve as a delegate at the Lance Armstrong Foundation’s LIVESTRONG Summit in Austin Oct. 27 - 29.

“I applied to be a delegate because of my multifaceted perspective,” Ms. Lipoma said. “As a cancer survivor, a caregiver to my parents who both had nonHodgkins lymphoma at the same time, an occupational therapist who practices in oncology and the bone marrow transplant unit at Baylor University Medical Center and as a clinical instructor at TWU, I wanted to lend my perspective and gain knowledge at the conference.”

Ms. Lipoma presented with fellow occupational therapists from M.D. Anderson and UT-Pan Am at the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) national conference in April 2006 on “Rehabilitation of the Cancer Patient: Understanding the Therapist's Role.” She also will co-present "Cancer Survivorship: Facilitating the Therapeutic Process” with Tina Fletcher, a TWU occupational therapy faculty member and bone marrow transplant survivor, at the 2007 AOTA conference.

Through the LIVESTRONG Summit, the Lance Armstrong Foundation will lead a survivorship movement to broaden awareness and impact the unmet physical, emotional and practical needs of people living with cancer. An estimated 800 to 1,000 Summit delegates will identify needs, set goals and develop action plans to change the face of cancer survivorship in their own communities and nationwide.
