Nutrition Class for Cancer Patients
Nutrition and healthy eating is an important part of the cancer treatment. Eating the right foods can help you feel better and stay stronger.
This class is designed to teach cancer patients and their loved ones how the illness and its treatment can impact appetite, ability to tolerate certain foods and the way the body digests food and absorbs nutrients.
A registered dietitian will review basic nutrition guidelines and meal planning strategies and introduce a dietary intervention to manage the side effects of cancer treatment.
Light refreshments, including water, will be provided.
