A Registered Dietitian is a liaison between the medical team and a patient and helps translate nutrition goals for the best possible treatment outcomes. They provide solutions to problems, which range from diet education and general counseling, hints for eating when nauseated and assisting with feeding tubes.
Our dietitians are advocates for patients. They work closely with the oncology care team and a patient’s care team at home while understanding challenges and providing suggestions on the best way to consume calories based on side effects or individual challenges. The objective is to meet goals for calories, protein, and fluid in order to assist with completing planned treatment, helping to ease side effects, and improve overall quality of life.

|“I am an advocate for my patients by taking the time to understand preferences, personal needs, and determining what motivates them. By developing trust and confidence with the patient I can make them feel more empowered to take control of their nutrition plan of care. When a patient is educated and empowered the best results are achieved!”|
