s Samantha Edwards was working toward her doctorate in naturopathic medicine, she helped a friend who was her age through cancer treatment. The experience inspired her to learn more about how naturopathic support could be used in conjunction with cancer treatments to help people feel stronger throughout their fight and possibly reduce side effects.
“I knew I wanted to join Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) because they are constantly raising the bar when it comes to providing patient-focused, integrative cancer care," says Edwards.
Edwards completed her residency in naturopathic support at CTCA® Tulsa, and in July 2014, she joined CTCA Chicago. She provides consultation regarding safe use of dietary supplements that may help patients reduce side effects that may be caused by treatment.
“My goals for patients are to guide them and offer appropriate suggestions to educate and empower them,” she says.
Edwards earned a doctorate degree in naturopathic medicine from National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, Illinois, and received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
When she is not at CTCA, Edwards enjoys spending time with her husband and son, playing the piano and violin, and cooking
