Life Over Cancer:  A New Model of Integrative Cancer Treatment

Wednesday, June 7 / 6:00 - 7:30 p.m.

RSVP Required

The Life Over Cancer model is a comprehensive, individualized approach to the care of cancer patients.  Research indicates that patients on the program show excellent quality of life, functional status, sleep patterns, circadian rhythms and energy levels, as well as good survival times while undergoing advanced cancer treatment.  A detailed patient assessment is used to create an individually tailored treatment plan that includes conventional cancer treatments as well as integrative interventions such as therapeutic diet, selective supplementation, bio-behavioral strategies and prescriptive exercise programs.
