The Charles Grant Charitable Foundation has committed to grow its partnership with the Integrative Medicine Program at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.
The foundation provides copies of the book Anticancer: A New Way of Life by David Servan-Schreiber MD PhD, to the hospital's Learning Center for patients and their families.
“We are proud of our ongoing partnership with MD Anderson in Charlie's honor,” said Trustee Lezli Harrell. “With increased demand, we look forward to expanding our support this year and beyond through Charlie’s Book Club.
“Our patients and families benefit greatly from the books donated by Charlie’s foundation,” said Professor and Director of MD Anderson’s Integrative Medicine Program Dr. Lorenzo Cohen.
Dr. Cohen is leading research and trials examining the effects of integrative medicine practices and lifestyle changes to reduce side effects of cancer and cancer treatments and improve quality of life and outcomes. The Integrative Medicine Program engages patients and their families to become active participants in improving their physical, psycho-spiritual and social health. The ultimate goals are to optimize health, quality of life and clinical outcomes through personalized evidence-based clinical care, exceptional research and education.
Donors can provide a book to a patient by joining Charlie’s Book Club.
