Care of the Underserved – The Get Well Program
The Get Well Program is an outreach program that provides integrative medicine therapies to individuals who could not otherwise afford them.
Maya Amoils, daughter of Steve & Sandi Amoils MD’s, championed and inspired “Maya’s Way” as a way of giving back to young people (like her) who are suffering from cancer. Maya’s journey demonstrated that wellbeing is achievable despite illness and this program aims to support optimal wellbeing for patients through their own journey with illness.
