Pediatrics and Adolescents
“The best part of life is not just surviving, but thriving with passion, compassion, humor and style, generosity, and kindness.” -Maya Angelou
Karuna Precision Wellness Center provides an integrated, comprehensive approach toward optimizing overall health, wellness and quality of life in cancer survivors—No matter what age!
Childhood through early adulthood is the time of life when the physical, cognitive, social-emotional, and spiritual foundations are being built for lifelong health, learning, and well-being. For many pediatric, adolescent, and young adult cancer survivors, this developmental journey is interrupted and may require a re-envisioning of future hopes and plans.
Karuna Precision Wellness Center takes an individualized and whole person approach when determining the impact treatment has on life, long-time learning, and careers. Through conversation and assessments, a Prescription for Transitions will be provided and, if needed, ongoing support made available.
Supportive elements provided in the prescription may include:
-Designing personal goals and instituting a plan to meet those goals
-Identifying resources to enhance outcomes
-Discerning specific interventions and utilization of strategies when and where needed
-Providing guidance and accountability
-Assisting with locating new opportunities and making new connections
-Supporting developmental life transitions within the school environment
-Aiding with the reintegration into the workforce or higher education programs
-Referrals to other specialists
Karuna Precision Wellness Center’s goal is to optimize physical, academic, cognitive, emotional, social, and spiritual well-being so that pediatric cancer survivors thrive in their futures. The best and most effective ways to accomplish this is through the implementation of insights gained from experience, observations, and research. Applying this knowledge into practical tools and useful strategies will give survivors of all ages the chance to live their lives to the fullest.
