Integrative Oncology in Practice: Where to start and What’s New

Integrative Oncology is becoming more and more prevalent in all facets of medical practice. Patient (and family / caregiver) demand for practitioners who have exposure to the basic tenants of integrative oncology grow daily.

There are demands for medical care in the oncology patient far beyond the current standard of care and in general training in that area is lacking. The purpose of this two and a half day seminar is to expose the healthcare provider to basic and mid-level approaches to caring for the patient with cancer. Expert faculty who practice integrative oncology daily will discuss palliative care strategies, incorporating integrative oncology with standard care, oral therapies, basics of diet, intravenous therapy updates and case management.

Mark Rosenberg, MD

rosenberg_home_imgDr. Mark Rosenberg began his career as an accomplished emergency physician and medical professor, first in the army where he achieved the rank of major, and then with a number of leading hospitals. However, after a decade of practice, he began to question some of the traditional standards of care that he had been taught in his medical training, because they were not meeting the needs of his patients.

Since that time over a decade ago, Dr. Rosenberg has become a leading researcher and clinician in the areas of healthy aging and integrated cancer therapy. He has dedicated his career to improving the aging process for men and women, as well as the care and outcomes for both early stage and terminal cancer patients. He and his staff have developed a reputation for solving aging and cancer challenges facing his patients that have not been successfully addressed by traditional medicine using the latest medical and nutritional science.

Dr. Rosenberg serves on the board of directors for the American Academy of Anti-Aging medicine, and is an advisor and lecturer for the academy, as well as the program director of the United States first Integrative Cancer Therapy Fellowship. In addition to being an astute clinician, Dr. Rosenberg is a research scientist, and is actively involved in the development of drugs and techniques to combat cancer, obesity, and age-related diseases. He holds a patent-pending on a unique drug for obesity, a novel nanoparticle, as well as a patent-pending for a cancer “cocktail,” designed to specifically attack resistant cancer cells.
