Fashion designer makes room for yoga at NYC hospital
A longtime practitioner of yoga and meditation, fashion designer Donna Karan has contributed $850,000 to the Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City to bring yoga therapy and a new kind of caregiving to the cancer wing. Karan believes the research attached to the one-year grant will show that hospital stays can be shortened and fewer anxiety drugs administered, which would save the patient and insurance companies money.
