Cancer patients and survivors frequently use complementary therapies as part of their treatment programs, often without informing their conventional oncologists. Many seek guidance from the new breed of integrative oncologists who strive to create a regimen that combines the best of conventional and complementary therapies. Abrams is one of the pioneers in this new field. He will discuss principles and practices of integrative oncology.
