On behalf of Drs. Lorenzo Cohen and Richard Lee and the conference planning committee at the UT MD Anderson Cancer Center Integrative Medicine Program in Houston, TX, I am pleased to announce that registration is now open for the 7th Annual Oncology Training Conference for Acupuncturists, Massage Therapists, and Yoga Teachers. Please click the following link to access the conference web page where you can find complete information about the meeting as well as a copy of the brochure. Online registration is also available at this site.
We look forward to having you join us at the conference in July!
Here's a peek at what the conference has to offer:
Persons touched by cancer may enhance their quality of life through the safe and effective delivery of massage, acupuncture, and yoga which complement conventional cancer treatments with a focus on physical, mind-spirit, and social well-being. These treatment modalities can be successfully and safely integrated with conventional medical care when delivered by trained professionals to improve outcomes for cancer patients.
This course will provide licensed massage therapists, licensed acupuncturists, and trained yoga teachers an overview of evidence-based practice in cancer care. Topics of recent research findings, recommendations for treating common side-effects, ethical issues, safety issues and case presentations will be presented.
This program should be of interest to licensed acupuncturists, licensed massage therapists, and yoga teachers.
