    Integrative Medicine brings conventional and complementary practices together in a coordinated way as part of the patient’s medical care plan.  The program was developed at the recommendation of the organization’s board of directors, who identified a need for supportive therapies to help make every moment count for patients and families experiencing serious illness.

  • For the past several months I’ve been helping out a friend by posting inspirational content on a Facebook page she started called A Place of Grace, for people who struggle with drug addiction and also for their families.
    Every day I search the internet for messages of hope and encouragement for those who feel especially hopeless and discouraged, words and images that might help broken and struggling people.

  • One of my favorite things about summer is my front row seat at the orchestra. The orchestra of insects, that is.  
    Late summer, when temperatures cool down enough to turn the air conditioner off and open the windows, we fall asleep to the sounds of katydids, crickets and cicadas. This year our air conditioner actually broke so we were forced to open up the house during a rather hot spell. But I usually cheat in the heat of the summer and crack the window in my office so I can hear the insects and the birds as I work at the computer or in the kitchen.
