Just a quick note to let you know that I am doing a webinar for Dietitian Central THIS Thursday, June 18th from 2-4pm. The title is “Oncology Nutrition Crash Course” and I will cover common nutrition challenges for oncology patients during treatment and also myths and truths regarding cancer nutrition for healthy survivorship and risk reduction. The cost is $36 for the 2 hours, and CEU credits are provided.
You don’t have to be a dietitian to participate, although it’s definitely geared for people who are registered dietitians. By purchasing the webinar, you can access it live AND/OR access the recording anytime afterwards.
