Addressing Malnutrition During and Beyond Cancer Treatment

Neha D. Shah MPH, RD, CNSC, CHES Astrid Shapiro, MS, RD, CSO Erika Connor, RD, CSO

Malnutrition, in the form of protein-calorie malnutrition can arise during cancer treatment when an individual is eating much less from the diet and has lost excess amount of weight. Malnutrition can make an impact on how the individual may tolerate cancer treatment and how it can impact healing and recovery.  It is important to reduce risks and treat malnutrition to help the individual stay nutritionally strong. This seminar will cover what is malnutrition, how malnutrition can arise during cancer treatment, what are the consequences of malnutrition and what are treatment options to help reduce malnutrition.

The Stanford Cancer Supportive Care Program provides FREE classes, workshops, fitness classes, services, and support to all cancer patients, regardless of where they receive their care.
