CLL and living well on “watch and wait”

The aim of this webinar is to explore the psychological, general health and wellbeing challenges that you may encounter when living on active monitoring (watch and wait).

On Friday 1st September at 3:30pm, we’ll be looking at how diet, physical activity, sleep and rest can make a difference in improving your day to day quality of life when living with CLL.
