Welcome

Located on the second floor of UF Health Cancer Center at Orlando Health, the Medical Center Radiology Group (MCRG) Patient & Family Learning Center is a relaxed and comfortable place for patients, families and visitors to access health information. The center provides print and multimedia resources focusing on cancer-related topics, including disease-specific information, symptom management, psychosocial support and coping with a cancer diagnosis.

For many cancer patients, finding facts about their disease and treatment options can be a big stress reliever. Information gives a sense of control over their situation, and equips them with the knowledge to ask intelligent questions. Patients can then coordinate with their healthcare team to make more informed treatment decisions.
