Cancer Survivor's Guide to Nutrition:  Lecture Series

As cancer treatment continues or comes to an end, you may wonder what foods you should be eating.  It may be time to develop new lifestyle behaviors in regard to nutrition and physical activity.  Join in for a monthly lecture and discussion on the importance of nutrition and physical activity in cancer recovery and prevention.

Each month, a new topic is discussed.  Topics range from choosing whole foods, sugars and sweeteners, understanding food labels and nutrition claims, use of supplements, etc.

No classes scheduled at this time.

This is a free patient service open to patients and family members of the Milton J. Dance, Jr. Head and Neck Center and the Sandra and Malcolm Berman Cancer Institute and Breast Center at GBMC.  Light fare and refreshments are served and parking is complimentary.
