CBCI and Presbyterian/St. Luke's cancer care nutrition team provides comprehensive nutrition care throughout your cancer journey. Adequate nutrition is vital for people with cancer and directly supports them during their treatment and recovery. We are available for pre-treatment consultation to maximize your nutritional status prior to therapy. Our team also provides inpatient and outpatient support and consultation during treatment and post-treatment to maximize your recovery. Each member of our nutrition team has a special interest in oncology nutrition, a subspecialty providing an expert nutrition knowledge base related to cancer, blood disorders, autoimmune disorders and stem cell transplantation. You meet with a dietitian within the first week of your admission to provide nutrition goals and advice. We are here to encourage you, help you reach your goals and speed up your recovery!
