August 6, 2020

In this week’s episode of the CURE Talks Cancer podcast, oncology dietitian Rachel Wong shares some insight into the dietary modifications patients with cancer can make to ensure they maintain their nutrition and stay healthy through their treatment and beyond.

Good nutrition is important for patients with cancer, as it can help them proactively manage treatment related side effects, prevent weight loss and reduce the risk of cancer recurrence. However, treatment and its side effects can often cause a range of issues that affect a person’s ability to maintain a healthy diet.

On this week’s episode of the “CURE Talks Cancer” podcast, we’re chatting with Rachel Wong, an oncology dietitian from the Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center about what dietary modifications can be made to maintain nutrition, and how supplements can be used safely to help patients get the vitamins and minerals they need to stay healthy.
