Nutrition Care

Nutrition Care

Maintaining good nutrition is an important part of treatment for all cancer patients, as those who are well-nourished tolerate radiation or chemotherapy better. At the Nutrition Care Clinic, registered and certified dietitians help patients make the optimal dietary choices based on their health needs, using the most up-to-date resources available.

What to expect

Dietitians are available to counsel patients on their dietary concerns, from meal ideas to shopping tips to guidelines on gaining or maintaining weight during treatment. In addition to individualized counseling, the following free classes are available quarterly to patients and their caregivers:

  • Complementary Medicine: How Vitamins, Nutrition and Herbs Can Benefit You
  • Eating Well When Dealing with Cancer
  • Detox Diets: What Makes Sense for Cancer Patients
  • Lifestyle Changes for Successful Healing
