What will be asked of you

If you decide to take part in this study, you will be asked to take part in 1 of 2 programs to get recommended annual health screenings. Neither you nor the study doctor will choose what treatment you get. One of the programs will ask you to visit the survivorship clinic at their treating cancer center for recommended annual health screening. The other program will ask you to do the same, in addition, you will have a brief virtual health education consult, and receive ongoing remote education on topics of interest through MyChart.
