Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center has debuted About Herbs, a mobile application presented by our Integrative Medicine Service. The app, compatible with iPad®, iPhone®, and iPod touch® devices, gives users quick access to comprehensive information about herbs, botanicals, dietary supplements, complementary therapies, and more.
About Herbs, Memorial Sloan-Kettering’s first mobile app, draws from our About Herbs webpages. Users can explore evidence-based details about more than 260 products and services in the integrative medicine arena – from purported uses and chemical structure to adverse reactions and side effects. Each listing can be viewed in two formats: one written for consumers and the other for healthcare professionals. Updates and additions are provided automatically on a weekly basis.
“About Herbs draws from the robust content available on Memorial Sloan-Kettering’s website and makes it accessible on-the-go for healthcare practitioners and members of the general public alike,” explains Barrie R. Cassileth, Chief of the Integrative Medicine Service.
Additional features of the app include the ability to:
- Search by product name, service name, or medical condition
- Save your favorite listings
- Browse listings without an Internet connection after the app has been downloaded
- Share content with friends and colleagues by e-mailing the link to the information on our website
We invite you to download the Memorial Sloan-Kettering About Herbs app from the App StoreSM.
