Insights Into Cancer – February 7, 2017

Nutrition and Cancer: A Strategic Approach

Presented by Carolyn Katzin, MS, CNS, MNT

About the Lecture

Nutrition is one of the few topics where patients have control, yet it is also a source of much anxiety and stress for many. This lecture will look at which foods and supplements may be helpful both for minimizing side effects during treatment as well as optimizing health and wellness. Carolyn Katzin has been helping cancer patients and their families for 28 years and has accumulated a wealth of wisdom from this experience which she will share tonight. The goal of the evening’s lecture is to provide actionable information and knowledge and to identify reliable sources for knowledge about diet and cancer.
