One breezy Sunday in October, Kathy Poodiac rounded up more than a dozen of her oncology patients for a leaf-peeping drive to the North Georgia Mountains - and a lovely afternoon at Second Wind. An Oncology Physician Assistant with over 20 years of experience, Kathy prepared a delicious, healthy lunch then gave everyone the chance to visit with each other and explore Second Wind and its natural surroundings. It was a fun and inspiring day that gave Kathy's patients a break from dealing with illness, with the chance to just enjoy the beautiful, colorful season.

Kathy has a new blog called "New Cancer Info Made Easy" that provides up-to-date information on new cancer treatments in an easy- to-understand format. Check it out at
