Information on University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio
The Cancer Therapy & Research Center (CTRC) at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, located in San Antonio, Texas, is a patient care, research, prevention and education center of Health Science Center School of Medicine.
CTRC also believes in addressing the emotional upheaval cancer may cause, whether it manifests itself through clinical depression, anxiety, or some other psychosocial diagnosis. Patients and family members alike can receive emotional support in our Department of Psychosocial Services. An oncologic psychologist is a regular member of the multidisciplinary treatment teams that staff our specialty clinics and is available to educate or counsel patients coping with a multitude of changes and concerns. A consulting psychiatrist can prescribe drugs, if they are required, that “fit” well with the patient’s cancer treatments. CTRC also sponsors and makes referrals to numerous support groups including some exclusively for children and caregivers.
CTRC has some of the world’s leading experts in different types of cancer, as well as an integrated, multi-disciplinary care team that means more physicians, technicians and specialists are working together to look at each and every case, making sure it is the optimal treatment plan. We treat the cancer, and care for the patient. Our scientists and doctors are committed to conquering cancer one patient at a time.
Here is a great videos to check out on PREVENTING CANCER THROUGH NUTRITION. There are many more videos on their YouTube channel.
