The Oncology Rehab Partners’ STAR Program (Survivorship Training and Rehabilitation) gives cancer survivors another tool to use in their long-term recovery. The STAR Program, developed by a rehabilitation physician who is a cancer survivor, consists of specialty therapy services, including physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy to help cancer patients increase strength and energy, decrease pain and improve daily function and well-being.
DCH Health System is the first health system in the state of Alabama to offer the STAR Program.
The STAR program has 25 staff members from the Lewis and Faye Manderson Cancer Center, Acute Care Therapy, the DCH Rehabilitation Pavilion and Outpatient Therapy Services who are certified and trained in oncology rehabilitation.
If you or a loved one has survived cancer but still not living life as you’d like, ask your physician if you might benefit from participating in the STAR Program. For more information about the STAR Program, call 205-759-7860.
