Session Eleven: Integrative Oncology: What It Can Do in Cancer Prevention and Cancer Care

  • 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm (ET)
  • AUGUST 14, 2014 Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center

Webinar Overview

Many types of cancer are life style related diseases. Exposure to harmful elements and diet are strongly linked to incidence of certain types of cancer. The level of physical activities, stress, sleep and circadian cycles also may play a role. Integrative medicine promotes a healthy life style that is nurturing to the body, rather than undermining it, and thus helps promote prevention of cancer and cancer recurrence. In this webinar, Dr. Gary Deng will review the current knowledge base of the role of nutrition, physical activities, stress reduction and natural products in preventive cancer care and discuss how to apply the integrative medicine approach in this setting.
