Oh Rena, that rads dept sounds awful and so depressing!
I see "our" komen waiting room similar to to the cancer wellness centre I volunteer at, when I bring the people to the waiting room they're amazed to be brought into a beautiful comfortable and bright lounge with comfy chairs, magazine's, soothing music and snacks....and of course tea/coffee and it looks onto a beautiful garden with a mini waterfall.
People immediatly say wow when they walk in, I myself go home feeling very calmed having been there:)
All the therapy rooms are designed in similar fashion with the names called after a flower with large prints on the walls etc....
I'm sure you all have your own thoughts as to what should be added to this, but this is my idea of the komen waiting room:)
Oh, almost forgot..lets add a Dr in the corner to answer any questions while we wait lol....
Pat, did'nt forget you, drinks served at the water feature in the garden!!!
