Highland's new Weight Management & Lifestyle Center is now open and accepting referrals. Led by Thomas M. Campbell, II, M.D., and Erin Campbell, M.D., M.P.H., the program offers non-surgical approaches to treating obesity and related conditions, and will also be conducting research on the link between nutrition and cancer.
Highland will receive a $1.5 million donation from the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies for the new nutrition research program. Initial research done by the center will focus on nutrition and cancer. The pilot project will be a first-of-its-kind study that looks at the effects of plant-based nutrition in patients with advanced breast cancer, who are also receiving conventional therapy.
