Nutrition: An Important Component in the Fight Against Cancer

Nutrition is a very important part of cancer treatment. A healthful diet can help to rebuild your body's cells, especially if you are receiving chemotherapy or radiation treatment.To help guide you, nutrition counseling is available by a registered dietitian for all Cancer Center patients.

Common counseling sessions include topics such as:

  • Appetite changes
  • Unintentional weight loss
  • Healthy eating
  • Side effects from treatment or
  • Instituting a therapeutic diet.
