Recap of Wednesday's Luncheon

The Myra Rubenstein Weis Health Resource Center Luncheon was held yesterday, May 1.  For those of you who attended, we would like to say thank you for attending. And for those of you who were unable to attend, we have a recap of the afternoon.
This event  was dedicated to “Harmonious Healing” and was the luncheon's 17th year.  It was honoring Janardan D. Khandekar, MD, who is the Director at the Center for Molecular Medicine in the NorthShore University Health System.  Dr. Khandekar has contributed greatly to the field of oncology by researching better ways to fight cancer for over thirty years.
In addition to honoring Dr. Khandekar, Dr. Brent Bauer from the Complementary and Integrative Medicine Program at the Mayo Clinic spoke.  Dr. Bauer has done extensive research in the field of evidence-based alternative medicine.  He is the one who determines if an herbal supplement or acupuncture will  help a certain condition.  During his speech, he discussed how to combine conventional medicine with the best complimentary therapies for better health and wellness.
Freedom Home Care was thrilled to sponsor a table at the event not only because of the excellent speakers, but also because the proceeds went to “Living In The Future” Cancer Survivorship Program.  This program connects cancer survivors to resources and support networks from which they can benefit.
Overall, it was a very successful event, which raised awareness for extremely important health related issues our society is currently facing. We would like to thank Dr. Khandekar and Dr. Bauer for their attendance and excellent presentations.
