​​​​Eating well is not always easy when you have cancer and are undergoing treatment. With the help of our registered dietitians, you can learn about eating well during and after treatment. Dietitians can help you:

  • Manage symptoms that affect nutrition
  • Stay hydrated
  • Develop a personal nutrition therapy program
  • Control weight loss or weight gain
  • Understand the risks and benefits of complementary or alternative diet therapies

In one-on-one consultations, a dietitian works with you to plan a healthy diet for you during and after cancer treatment. The dietitian will help you modify your plan as things change.
