Oncology Nutrition Services

How we can help

Side effects from cancer treatment as well as symptoms of the disease can be difficult to manage and often interfere with eating. You may be experiencing low appetite, taste changes, feeling full, fatigue and energy loss, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, difficulty swallowing, weight loss, weight gain, or other nutritional challenges.

Our dietitians are certified as specialists in oncology nutrition and work directly with other members of your care team supporting patients and caregivers in managing symptoms and side effects throughout treatment and in survivorship.

Who we are

We are licensed and registered dietitians, including some who are Board Certified Specialists in Oncology (CSO) with Master of Science degrees. We are part of the interdisciplinary care team working to support patients with all types of cancer throughout the continuum of care. We do this through one-on-one patient counseling and by participating in team meetings, specialty tumor boards, patient support groups, community classes, seasonal cooking demonstrations, and other patient events, within the Cancer Center, as well as nationally.
