BCC BEGINS 12-WEEK NUTRITION PROGRAM FOCUSED ON CANCER SURVIVORS

 

BISMARCK, ND: The Bismarck Cancer Center kicks of their “Live Well” series on January 8. This 12-week nutrition program focuses on empowering cancer survivors with the tools they need to live healthy, happy lives after they have completed treatment.

Throughout the program, local cancer survivors will attend individual and group education sessions with a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) who is board certified in oncology nutrition. The RDN will educate survivors about healthy eating strategies, including tips on eating out, reading nutrition labels, and cooking and recipe modification. Individual sessions are designed to meet individual needs, help problem solve and goal set. Group sessions are to expand knowledge, to provide tools and to practice strategies discussed throughout the 12-weeks series. “Live Well” will also feature several guest speakers. These health-care professionals will cover tops such as emotional health, exercise, and supplement use.

Information provided in “Live Well” is proven to be effective methods in weight management and cancer survivorship. The program is intended for cancer survivors that have completed treatment at least three months ago and are looking to improve their health through nutrition and exercise. The deadline to register for “Live Well” is January 3rd, and the

program is offered at no cost through the Bismarck Cancer Center Foundation. For more information or to register, please contact Amanda Ihmels at 701.222.6154 or aihmels@bismarckcancercenter.com.
