Some risk factors for cancer are out of our control, but diet is not one of them. Building good eating habits is crucial for a healthy life, but it can also reduce your risk of certain cancers.

Moderation is key, and you can still enjoy your favorite foods, but making healthy choices is a great way to build a better diet from the ground up. If you are diagnosed with cancer, working with a registered dietitian throughout your treatment can help you anticipate and address changes in appetite, taste preferences and weight.

The nutritionists at the Barbara L. Posner Wellness & Support Center are an integral part of the center’s integrative care program, offering nutritional counseling support to keep patients strong and healthy in mind, body and spirit.
