Kudos to fashion designer Donna Karan for putting her money where her mouth is by donating $850,000 for the initiation of a pilot program on integrative therapies at the Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City. The program, highlighted in today's New York Times ,will include yoga, reflexology and aromatherapy as integral parts of a patient's treatment plan, if they wish. I am a firm believer that we can enhance our healing process if we are given options and choices in creating our own care plan, including the best that modern medicine and traditional healing practices have to offer. What a wonderful resource to have a myriad of options available to the patients at Beth Israel. I wish the pilot program much success!
