Latanya Ruiz presented at the Daytona Beach Oncology Yoga Teacher Training. She is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker at AdventHealth Daytona Beach Cancer Institute. She holds an Oncology Social Work Certification and spoke on this topic for us. She has been a practicing social worker for over 20 years, and working with the cancer population for 16 years.
Latanya is passionate about working with patients and helping them find various ways to cope, adjust and care for themselves as they go through their cancer experience. In her role she can assist patients and caregivers that are struggling with financial, emotional, and mental health concerns through a network of resources targeted for the oncology patient. She is also a proud mother of two daughters, a wife of 22 years, a loving sibling all her life and a dutiful daughter to wonderful parents.
AdventHealth and the Christina Phipps Foundation provided an Advanced Continuing Education Training for Yoga Instructors on July 8 and 9, 2023 and we were able to open anymore Oncology Yoga classes in that area, on Zoom and expanded our YouTube channel due to this very successful training.
