Nutrition Support Through Cancer Treatment

We provide practical instruction on healthy eating habits before, during, and after cancer treatment, giving you the tools and knowledge that you need to fuel your body.

Let’s Navigate Nutrition, Together.

Nutrition is an essential part of cancer treatment, recovery, and overall well-being. But many patients struggle to find the foods that provide them with the nutrients they need while dealing with changing taste buds, increased nausea, and feelings of overwhelm from diagnosis through the end of treatment.

Here at the Dempsey Center, our team of registered dietitians provides evidence-based guidelines and practical tips to help promote good habits during treatment and beyond. Whether you meet with a member of our team one-on-one or take part in a no-cost class or workshop, we are here to help you discover foods that work for you.
