Gilchrist recently launched a new program to ensure that cancer patients in the Sandra & Malcolm Berman Cancer Institute at GBMC have access to a full range of evidence-based treatment interventions to alleviate the symptoms, stress of cancer, and side effect of cancer treatment, and improve their quality of life. Patients may also receive integrative treatment planning for symptoms such as sleep problems, anxiety, depression, pain, nausea, fatigue, and stress. Delia Chiaramonte, MD, director of Gilchrist’s Integrative Medicine program, discusses how the wide variety of treatments offered by the program, from medications to massage and relaxation strategies, can help people with cancer to gain control over unpleasant symptoms and thrive during their treatment and beyond.
