Healthy Holiday Eating Web Chat

‘Tis the season for indulgence, fa la la la la la la la laaaaa! With the holiday season upon us, it’s hard to resist the urge to overindulge. While it is important for everyone to know how to make healthy choices when it comes to nutrition and exercise, incorporating the right foods a nutritional elements into one’s diet is especially important for cancer survivors. According to the National Cancer Institute, an individual is considered a cancer survivor from the time of diagnosis through the balance of his or her life. Understanding the role nutrition plays before, during, and after cancer treatment is critical to ensuring cancer survivors are as strong as possible through their journey in the fight against cancer.

Because nutritional recommendations can be very different for cancer patients than for the average healthy adult, Tiffany Barrett, MS, RD, CSO, LD, of the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University, is hosting an online chat on Tuesday, December 11, 2012 at noon EST to share her insights on optimal nutrition to support the journey in the fight against cancer.

Be proactive this holiday season and join Tiffany and our other chat participants to share tips, ideas, and get questions answered related to the best nutritional choices you can make this holiday season and beyond!
