Essentia Health’s STAR oncology program is getting national recognition. STAR stands for Survivorship Training and Rehabilitation and focuses on helping patients heal physically and emotionally from cancer. The program’s founder, Dr. Julie Silver, an associate professor at Harvard Medical School, asked Essentia’s STAR coordinator, Joan Jeanetta, to speak at the program’s national conference earlier this month in Boston.
