I have made a move this month out of my full-time integrative practice back into a more traditional medicine job. I am excited to be working with the gynecology oncologists at Texas Oncology at Baylor University Medical Center Baylorin a supportive role. I will be seeing their clients who are being monitored for pre-invasive diseases of the uterus, cervix, vagina and vulva and working with them in the clinic setting. In addition, they have asked me to help set up a “survivorship” program to help cancer patients who have completed their therapies to regain their emotional, mental, physical and spiritual health. The best part of this is that we have NO IDEA what this will look like. One on one patient visits? Group visits? Web-based materials? Develop hand-outs? Just thinking about the possibilities makes me smile.

I also plan to work in the Cvetko integrative medicine center at Baylor one day a week so I can keep my acupuncture skills and continue to care for my integrative medicine clients. This part of the job is still in process. Once it is confirmed, I’ll post a note. In the meantime, the lovely team at Living Well Dallas has agreed to let me schedule over the next few months while all the arrangements are being finalized.

Blessings to you and yours during this season of growth and change!
