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.

When?January 24, 2011
Where? Physicians Pavilion East, Conference Center at GBMC
Topic? This month I will discuss dietary fats: including omega-3, omega-6, saturated, and trans fat.  I will address the latest research on the benefits of omega-3 fats and recommendations for meat and fish consumption.   I will also provide information on how to choose healthy fats when grocery shopping; from butter and margarine to foods fortified with omega-3 fats.  As with every month, I will have recipes to incorporate healthy fats.

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.
