The Cancer Education Center at Swedish is a unique resource that provides patient education to the public free of charge.

The center offers a wide variety of brochures, books, videos and audiotapes about cancer, and an expansive computer database that can be used to search for and print information about specific types of cancer. The center is staffed with health educators and offers a safe environment for patients and their caregivers to learn about their specific cancer and available support resources.

  • Computer and internet access
  • Loan library books for rent
  • iPad’s for rent
  • Assistance with registering for patient education classes
  • Anatomical models for practicing self-exams
