"This was an excellent, well-organized succinct presentation regarding nutrition for cancer patients relating to facts, controversies and myths.  Your lecture was greatly enhanced by your experience as a Registered Dietitian and your role as a nutrition counselor @ Integrative Medicine Service at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.  In addition, to your Certification in Dietetics and Nutrition and educational training pertaining to nutrition/diet for cancer prevention teaching cancer patients and their families makes you an excellent candidate to lecture on this area.

Your lecture provided a wealth of research pertaining to the EPIC trial, nutrition during treatment, nutrition and prevention and plant-based diet benefits.  Very informative topic regarding nutrition for cancer patients relating to facts, controversies and myths in your series entitled insights on integrative oncology.  Again, another excellent power point, overview with wonderful up-to-date, useful information concerning nutrition for cancer prevention, thus promoting optimal assistance in the treatment and management of cancer pts.

Thanks,

"This was an excellent, well-organized succinct presentation regarding Cancer “treatment” Quackery: What You & Your Patients Need to Know.  Your lecture was greatly enhanced by your experience as a physician-scientist on the Integrative Medicine Service @ Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, New York.  Your personal ethic background and Eastern medicine philosophy in addition to your Board Certifications as an Internist and Acupuncturist makes you an excellent oncologist to provide this section.  Furthermore, your personal interests in health maintenance, supportive care and symptom control with cancer patients and survivors makes you an expert in proposing optional medicinal perspectives from Eastern cultures. 

Your lecture provided a wealth of research pertaining to why patients fall for quackery anticancer diets, anticancer energy work and key points to discuss with cancer patients. Very informative topic regarding the insights on integrative oncology with quackery treatment for cancer patients.  Again, another excellent power point, overview with wonderful up-to-date, with useful information concerning quackery treatments in cancer care.  Thus, providing an insight on quackery and the importance of what your patients need to know.

I believe that when the current standard of care for the treatment for cancer doesn’t cure or when the side effects are simply unmanageable, many times patients are willing to take a leap of faith and embrace any opportunity offered to them in order to prolong their lives.  Unfortunately, we all know that there are far to many individuals in our society that are willing to make a buck at any cost.  Frightened and desperate patients may find comfort in believing that all of the potential cures options are not being offered than to sense that their condition is hopeless.

Thanks,
