Integrative Wellness at Maryland Proton Treatment Center
In January 2018, we began a unique collaboration with the Maryland Proton Treatment Center (MPTC) to provide Integrative Wellness to patients receiving proton therapy as part of their cancer care. The purpose of our partnership is to support patients in a comprehensive and patient-centered way. The Integrative Wellness program aims to treat the whole person by addressing the full range of physical, mental-emotional, and environmental influencers that affect health. MPTC wrote: "By reducing symptoms and empowering patients with the skills and know-how to live well, we can work toward improving quality of life and cancer outcomes." We strongly agree!
