The National Ovarian Cancer Coalition developed this education series to give women who have been recently diagnosed with ovarian cancer, survivors and their families up-to-date information on the disease, what to expect and treatments. This information is designed to help women and their families make informed health care decisions pertaining to ovarian cancer. Dr. Balk’s expertise focuses on alternative medicine treatments in women’s health. She is trained in acupuncture, mind-body medicine and yoga, and has conducted clinical trials using acupuncture and nutritional approaches to the treatment of a number of women’s disorders. She is beginning a study on acupuncture for cancer-related fatigue in breast cancer patients.
The series is free and open to the public, but registration is required because a light dinner will be served. To register, visit http://magee.upmc.com or call 412-641-4492.
