Virtual Workshop Series

Join New Day for a series of online conversations

Tune in for our series of free, online conversations with experts, designed to give useful information and breathe life into difficult situations. Moderated by JoAnne Purtan and Kim Adams, these live 30-60 minute sessions are designed to give cancer patients, caregivers, and the surrounding community the tools and resources needed to live well.

JoAnne Purtan is a Detroit broadcasting legend. From WXYZ-TV to her current role on WOMC Mornings, JoAnne’s family has been directly impacted by cancer and she is committed to helping families overcome the financial and emotional struggles that come with a diagnosis.

Kim Adams is one of metro-Detroit’s most recognizable faces. Most remember her as a skilled meteorologist at WXYZ (ABC-Detroit) and WDIV (NBC-Detroit), and recent radio host at 98.7 The Breeze. Kim is a breast cancer survivor and considers being a single mom to five beautiful children her most rewarding endeavor.

A special thank you to Comerica for providing resources to patients and families through support of our workshop series.
