Welcome to CCSP/Palliative Care Grand Rounds
The Palliative Care and Comprehensive Cancer Support Programs (CCSP) co-organize weekly presentations on the care of seriously ill patients and their families, including individuals living with cancer, relevant to interdisciplinary clinicians. Individual topics address pain and symptom management, communication approaches with patients and families, strategies to facilitate coping and support, quality improvement and research in these disciplines.

Osteopathic Manipulative Therapy in Hospice and Palliative Medicine
Originally from Utah, I have taken a rather circuitous journey to get where I am today. From medical school at Touro University College of Osteopathic Medicine on the outskirts of Las Vegas, to a Traditional Rotating Internship in Stratford, NJ at Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine, I then transitioned into Internal Medicine, completing residency at Augusta University Medical Center. From there, I came to Asheville to complete my Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship, with a focus on the use of one of my passions, Osteopathic Manipulative Therapy, in our hospice and palliative Medicine population.
