NorthBay plans free diet class for cancer patients
FAIRFIELD — Cancer patients will have a chance next month to learn some cuisine tips to make treatments more comfortable.
A free class will answer the questions:
- What foods are best to eat before, during or after cancer treatments?
- What dietary choices can help enhance a person’s response to treatment?
NorthBay Healthcare dietician Rhonda Buckles will lead the class from 6 to 8 p.m. Nov. 12 at NorthBay Medical Center’s annex in Conference Rooms 1 and 2, located behind the hospital at 1200 B. Gale Wilson Blvd. in Fairfield.
Participants will hear about the foods that are best for maintaining weight, reducing treatment-related side effects and improving overall quality of life during cancer treatments, according to a release announcing the class.
Seating is limited. For more information or to reserve a seat, call 646-4014.
