We will send you reminders and sign-in information for all those you choose below:
Monday October 4th, 12:00 – 1:00 pm Breast Cancer Nutrition: Myths & Truths
There is a lot of confusing information out there about food and cancer, and friends and family with good intentions often pass this information along to cancer patients and caregivers without checking for accuracy or scientific basis.
Get evidence-based cancer nutrition information from an expert in this session where Julie, a board certified specialist in oncology nutrition, dispels common breast cancer nutrition myths and gives you the truths so that you can optimize your diet for cancer risk reduction, treatment and survivorship.
Speaker: Julie Lanford, MPH, RD, CSO, LDN, author and creator of cancerdietitian.com and Wellness Director at Cancer Services, Inc.
