Volunteer of the Month: March 2018

Sandra Duvic

Since she started volunteering in January of 2016, Sandra Duvic has already made in indelible impression on our organization and the community. Beginning by volunteering one day a week in the Volunteer Services Department, Sandra then expanded to three days a week in three different areas. In fact, her “work” in Volunteer Services and the Emergency Department was so inspiring, when the EJ Women’s Clinic needed a volunteer one day a week, they specifically requested if Sandra could fill the role. She did and has not stopped impressing everyone with whom she comes in contact. Sandra, like so many of our volunteers, embodies the very best of our hospital, our community and our nation. She is selfless and committed to contributing to a greater good. We thank her for her commitment.

The Integrative Medicine Program at East Jefferson General Hospital

The Integrative Medicine Program at East Jefferson General Hospital is designed to complement your treatment plan and assist in overall wellness, recovery and empowerment. It works hand-in-hand with the many other resources made available to patients at EJGH. We offer this wide array of resources because we have seen them work. We believe that each patient is unique and strive to develop a treatment plan that best fits you and your needs.

Our mission and pledge:

  • To provide evidence-based educational resources to patients and healthcare professionals alike
  • To assist in the integration of various therapies, both conventional and more holistic
  • To improve the lives of our patients
  • To give our patients the widest possible array of resources that will assist them in their fight against cancer and provide relief during that fight.

What is Integrative Medicine?

Each person's illness and experience is unique. The Integrative Medicine program at EJGH is built around the belief that one size hardly ever fits all. Also known as complementary medicine, integrative medicine combines a full understanding of traditional medical care with other, more holistic or complementary resources intended to work hand-in-hand with your conventional medical treatments to provide the best outcomes and most healing and positive experience possible.

How Does the Program Work?

The program begins with a review of your current health and/or condition. This includes your course of treatment, diagnosis and prognosis along with your lifestyle and preferences. For this first visit, bring a list of your medicines, supplements, homeopathic remedies and other therapies you are currently using or use periodically. This initial consultation can take 30-90 minutes depending upon how many questions you have. The goal is to give you a better understanding of integrative medicine and to develop a program specifically around you and your needs. A follow-up visit will be scheduled to see how well you are progressing, answer any questions you have and modify your program if needed. Call 504-503-6250 for more information.
