Sharp Memorial Hospital
Nutrition Services for Patients Diagnosed With Cancer
Eating normally can be a challenge for many patients with cancer, but maintaining adequate nutrition is important before, during and after treatment.
The registered dietitians at Sharp Memorial Hospital's Laurel Amtower Cancer Institute are certified specialists of oncology nutrition. They are available to answer specific diet- and nutrition-related questions as well as assist patients with getting the nutrients needed to maintain their weight, strength and immunity during this critical time.
We also offer a free nutrition class for breast cancer patients to learn about nutrition and healthy eating both during and after treatment.
Our dietitians can offer dietary strategies for managing the side effects of treatment, address nutritional concerns following treatment or in the advanced stages of cancer and provide information on cancer prevention.
And we offer resources to help you stay informed and be empowered to manage your care.
If interested, please request a referral from your oncologist or call 858-939-5027 .
