Supportive Care
At the Joan Karnell Supportive Care Services, the patient experience is the essence of compassionate cancer care. Support comes in a variety of shapes and sizes to match your needs and concerns as you work to combat cancer.

We offer help in the form of one-on-one meetings with professional staff and support groups, which offer you the chance to talk to others who have faced similar illnesses and learn how they cope with their disease. Such opportunities for supportive care include:

  • Social work services for HIV oncology
  • Nutrition services for HIV oncology
  • Psychology, music and art therapy for HIV oncology
  • Integrative therapies for HIV oncology
