Commonweal's Collaborative on Health and the Environment launched its new, easy-to-navigate website this week. The site makes it easy to find science-based, up-to-date research and resources on toxics in the environment, and to join their more than 5,000 partners around the world working on a systems approach to health.
The Environmental Working Group (EWG), in partnership with Commonweal, announces a new website dedicated to the prevention of cancer with up-to-date news, conversations, and resources for cancer prevention, treatment, and wellness.
Commonweal proudly says goodbye to one of our foundational programs, as the Institute for the Study of Health and Illness moves into the good hands of Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine in Dayton, Ohio.
What is healing? We have explored this question throughout 30 years of facilitating the Commonweal Cancer Help Program, decades of work in The Institute for Health and Illness, and in the Healing Kitchens Institute and the Healing Yoga Foundation—all Commonweal programs. Healing Circles was born out of the desire to expand the circle of conversation to a larger group of patients and caregivers, serving more people and empowering others to serve as well.
The Commonweal Cancer Help Program (CCHP) is a week-long retreat for people with cancer. Our goal is to help participants live better and, where possible, longer lives. CCHP addresses the unmet needs of people with cancer. These include finding balanced information on choices in healing, mainstream and complementary therapies; exploring emotional and spiritual dimensions of cancer; discovering that illness can sometimes lead to a richer and fuller life; and experiencing genuine community with others facing a cancer diagnosis.
