The Simms/Mann – UCLA Center for Integrative Oncology, which is part of the UCLA’s Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center and UCLA Oncology, was designed to help patients and family members optimize their wellness and address the challenges throughout the continuum of cancer care. In a beautiful environment that facilitates calmness and tranquility, the Center offers a host of programs that go beyond the outstanding research based clinical care offered here at UCLA and provides many services to complement conventional medical care. While the first step in managing cancer is getting the best cancer care with leading edge physicians and researchers, we believe that patients and families need and want more. The best medicine combines multiple modalities. The Simms/Mann – UCLA Center for Integrative Oncology focuses on the needs of the whole person and their family. We understand that most patients want to optimize their wellness despite the challenges that cancer can bring. We know that patients often want to combine modalities and want and need information, guidance and support that addresses nutrition, supplements, mind/body approaches, psychological concerns and all matters of the mind, body, spirit and emotions. Our Center has a patient-centered model committed to facilitating partnership between patients and practitioners in the healing process.
