Fight Cancer with Your Fork!

Join us to hear from an award winning speaker on ways that dietary choices can affect cancer risk and cancer outcome. Diet plays a powerful role in cancer prevention and survival. Many health professionals acknowledge the role of diet in cancer prevention but underestimate the role it can play in cancer survival.  Nurses do not generally receive in-depth education in nutrition, and dietitians and fitness professionals tend to focus on protein-calorie malnutrition and macronutrient imbalances. Come learn about the diet and cancer connection and about which foods can increase and decrease susceptibility to cancer.

Hormones: The Missing Link in Weight Loss Resistance

Join us to hear from a medical doctor on the role hormones can play in obesity. Diet and exercise play in important role in weight management, but if the underlying cause of obesity is hormonal in nature then changing the diet and exercise may lead to either no weight loss or an initial limited loss of weight followed by a plateau. Assessment of hormonal status in these individuals may be an important first step towards helping them lose weight.
