Registered Dietician Joins Lancaster Cancer Center

Lancaster Cancer Center, Ltd. has announced that Lindsay Coleman, registered dietician, has joined the practice to provide medical nutrition therapy for patients undergoing chemotherapy or radiation therapy. She’ll help patients develop dietary strategies to manage side effects from their cancer treatment and support patients after their treatment to reach and maintain healthy lifestyle goals. Coleman will also advise patients on which nutritional supplements should be incorporated into their health plan.

Nutrition plays a vital role in the treatment of cancer. A healthy diet can help patients maintain proper digestive health, prevent malnutrition and remain strong during their treatments. Lancaster Cancer Center understands the importance nutrition plays in a patient’s recovery and as part of the Center’s integrated care.

“Creating good eating habits during treatment can have a positive impact on patients,” says Coleman. “Our ‘Dishes 2 Nourish’ cooking class will explore recipes and foods that offer optimal calories and protein needed for cancer patients’ diets.”
