During cancer treatment, it is important for patients to maintain their physical and emotional strength, and eating well is an important component of this. Yet, it can be difficult to know how to eat during cancer treatment – surgery, radiation and chemotherapy can all affect patients’ appetites, and may also affect patients’ nutritional needs. We offer nutritional risk screenings and counseling to assist patients in addressing treatment side effects resulting in weight loss. Our full-time Nutrition Services Coordinator is a registered dietitian who can provide advice on food as well as counseling on the use of nutritional or alternative supplements. Through the Nutritional Services Department, we provide complimentary organic snacks throughout the Center for both patients and their families.
