Judith M. Fouladbakhsh, PhD, RN, AHN-BC, PHCNS-BC, CHTP, Associate Professor of Nursing at Oakland University, joined the SIO Board of Trustees in October of 2014. She is an advanced practice nurse and educator, with extensive experience in integrative oncology, pain management, public health and cancer nursing.

We at the SIO are so sad to report the passing of our friend and professional colleague Jeremy Geffen, MD. Long before the term integrative oncology even existed, Jeremy created one of the very first successful working models of a truly integrative cancer center in the US.

SIO’s clinical guidelines are referenced in the May 2015 issue of Clinical Digest for Health Professionals of the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH). “Complementary and Integrative Approaches for Cancer Symptoms and Treatment Side Effects” provides information on the evidence base on complementary and integrative health approaches for cancer-related symptoms and treatment side effects, citing the clinical guidelines as a resource.  NCCIH Clinical Digest May 2015

Surface Endowed Chair in Cancer Population Sciences at the University of New Mexico and Associate Director for Cancer Control and Population Sciences, UNM Cancer Center. Dr. Kinney cites the importance of SIO's multi-disciplinary approach and roles in bringing together clinicians, scientists, patient advocates who share interests in integrative health care. "I believe in the tremendous power of integrating complementary therapies into the care of people at risk for cancer, with cancer or who have survived cancer."
