About Dr. Rula

Dr. Rula has played a key role in bringing integrative medicine to the Valley.  She served as medical director of the University of Arizona Integrative Health Center where she lead a team of physicians and complementary practitioners in a unique model of integrative primary care.  Dr.  Rula’s passion for integrative oncology was inspired by the experience of caring for her mother with terminal cancer. It was this experience that motivated her to train in integrative medicine to better help support patients during cancer treatment and help them go on to live healthy and vital lives.
