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.

“Lower-Sodium Soups”
Thursday, February 14th, 10-11 a.m.
Whether the weather is cold or mild, soup is a delicious way to nourish the body. For many, the sodium content of many soups in restaurants or the grocery aisle is too high for what the doctor recommends. Join D2N to learn, share, and taste the many ways to have a flavorful, but not salty, soup.

“Healthy Baking”
Thursday, March 14th
, 10-11 a.m.
Traditional baked goods are a tasty way to celebrate or comfort friends and family, but they tend to provide a lot of calories and not so many nutrients. In this D2N class, Lindsay, our dietitian, will share the many ways she makes her favorite treats into healthier choices.
