The Leonard P. Zakim Center for Integrative Therapies and Healthy Living

  • The Leonard P. Zakim Center for Integrative Therapies and Healthy Living at Dana-Farber is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for cancer patients and their families by incorporating complementary therapies into traditional cancer care.

    Through clinical services, education, and group programs led by physicians, therapists, nurses, and other health care professionals, the Center empowers patients to be active participants in their treatment plans. This integrative cancer care can help patients feel better by reducing the pain, stress, and anxiety caused by cancer and its treatment.

    The Zakim Center also seeks to build knowledge about the effectiveness of these therapies through peer-reviewed, evidence-based research.
