"Circle of Courage"

 Dr. Elizabeth Dickson and Ovarian Cancer Survivor Cheryl Figg  will be discussing the integration of holistic medicine with traditional care. This “Circle of Courage” is open to anyone that is interested. You do not need to be a cancer survivor to attend.     

Dr. Dickson believes in a team approach to cancer care, incorporating research, integrative medicine, and state of the art techniques to treat not only the patient's disease, but also support her whole being through cancer treatment and beyond. Dr. Dickson is trained in minimally invasive approaches, including traditional laparoscopy and robotic surgery. She has advanced research training and is committed to continuing research, in order to better care for women with cancer. She is a physician at Aurora Women's Pavilion.
