- My area of research is palliative care and symptom management. I have explored the use of melatonin for treating cancer and preventing weight loss from cancer and the use of honey to prevent burning of the esophagus from radiation therapy. I have also published on alternative medical systems such as Traditional Chinese Medicine and on the philosophy of medicine.
