This session is on Survivorship and Integrative Medicine and we have a very talented panel.  Each panelist spends about 10 minutes to talk to you about their area of expertise and how to maximize wellness, decrease stress and be your best self.  After the presentations, the panelists answer questions.

The first panelist is Dr. Judith Hopkins. Dr. Hopkins is a Medical Oncologist with the Novant Health Cancer Institute and works out of the Kernersville location.  She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Richmond and graduated from the University of Virginia Medical School.  She has been practicing medicine in Winston since 1980.  Her clinical interests include Breast Cancer Prevention, genetics, treatment and survivorship, as well as GI Malignancies and CLL.  Her hobbies include reading historical fiction, skiing and hiking. She also enjoys spending time with her family on their 110-acre farm in South Carolina.

Our second panelist is Dr. Russ Greenfield. Dr. Russ is the Medical Director of Novant’s new Integrative Medicine department.  Integrative Medicine is where the best of conventional medicine and complementary therapies are used together to maximize a person’s healing capacity.  He is Board Certified in Emergency Medicine, and in 1999 was one of the first four physicians to graduate from the Program in Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona, College of Medicine under the direction of Dr. Andrew Weil. (pronounced “While”)

Our third panelist, Kim DeRhodes, works very closely with Dr. Russ in the Integrative Medicine Department of Novant Health.  Kim is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where she received her BS in Pharmacy.  She has over 35 years experience as a pharmacist.  She frequently gives lectures on integrative and natural medicine and has taught classes at Queens College, UNCC, and Carolinas College of Healthcare Sciences.  She is a contributor to Dr. Andrew Weil’s latest book, Mind Over Meds.  She sees patients by appointment for medication therapy management and counsels them on the proper use of vitamins, herbs, and other natural medicines.
