nutrition and healthy eating Nutrition plays a vital role in the treatment of cancer. A healthy diet can help patients maintain proper digestive health, prevent malnutrition and remain strong during their treatments. Lancaster Cancer Center understands the importance nutrition plays in a patient’s recovery, which is why we offer an on-site dietitian to provide nutritional support throughout treatment.

Lindsay Coleman, RD is a registered dietitian who provides medical nutrition therapy for patients undergoing chemotherapy. She helps patients develop dietary strategies to prevent side effects from chemotherapy and supports patients after their treatment to reach and maintain healthy lifestyle goals. Lindsay also advises patients on which nutritional supplements should be incorporated into their health plan.
