On September 26th, experts from MSK’s Integrative Medicine Service shared their insights on the future of integrative therapies at CancerSmart, a live educational event. The lively discussion streamed to people watching from home through webcast and on Facebook Live, drawing 12,000 viewers. Clinicians demonstrated exercise, massage, and acupuncture techniques they use every day to help people living with cancer overcome side effects of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation, and improve their quality of life. Two current patients also shared their personal stories of how they have benefited from taking our exercise classes , and receiving regular acupuncture and massage, including how taking a pro-active integrative approach to their treatment has impacted their lives.
