Health & Wellness
Founded 2005 - Ongoing

The Simms/Mann-UCLA Center for Integrative Oncology provides integrative patient care for individuals and families touched by cancer. Built on a foundation of academic research and advanced treatment approaches, the Simms/Mann Center offers educational and support services that integrate psychological, nutritional, spiritual, and complementary approaches to healing.

Services provided by the Simms/Mann Center include:

  • Individual, couple, and family counseling
  • Groups for support and healing
  • Nutrition and supplements
  • Psychiatry and oncology
  • Insights into Cancer public lectures
  • Spiritual care

The Simms/Mann Center is part of UCLA’s Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, which is designated by the National Cancer Institute as one of only forty comprehensive cancer centers in the United States. As a national model for integrative patient care, we believe that comprehensive cancer care treats the whole person, not just the disease. The best care combines multiple modalities and considers the needs of the whole patient and family. The Simms/Mann Center offers the best of science combined with the most effective approaches that patient-centered care can provide.

In the quest to optimize wellness, most patients want and need information, guidance, and support that addresses nutrition and supplements, mind/body approaches, psychological concerns, and more. The Simms/Mann Center offers all of these services in one place.
