Nutrition for Cancer Patients

The Outpatient Oncology Nutrition Program at the N.C. Basnight Cancer Hospital provides individual nutritional counseling from Board Certified Oncology Nutrition Specialists.

As registered dietitians, they understand many of the common challenges related to treatment for, and recovery from, cancer. If you choose to meet with a Registered Dietitian for individual nutrition counseling, they will review your medical history, weight history, and diet history, to come up with diet recommendations that fit your goals. They work with patients undergoing surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation, and are familiar with the nutrition side-effects each imposes.

To support the Nutrition Program, you can make a donation to Zeny’s Garden.
