Cancer treatments can damage many healthy cells and deplete your body of the nutrients it needs to regain full strength. So, eating healthy is critical to maintaining your good health and energy levels during all stages of your treatment and throughout survivorship. Unlike other cancer centers, we proved nutrition services right on site—making them easily accessible to our patients—and all of our physicians are knowledgeable about the services we provide, so they can be integrated seamlessly into your treatment program.
Our oncology dietitians are trained to assess each patient’s nutritional risks and create an individualized plan that addresses specific issues and needs. This includes weight management counseling, dietary changes and the use of nutritional supplements if necessary. Our dietitians also offer classes, grocery store tours and presentations to help you with your dietary needs along the way. If you’d like to make an appointment with one of our dieticians, please call 860-358-2052.
Here is a list of downloadable documents and recipes that can help you maintain healthy nutrition during your cancer treatment and manage potential side effects.
