Jan 26, 2017 12:14AM
Lancaster Cancer Center (LCC), located in the Greenfield Corporate Center, provides cancer support groups and nutrition classes that are free and open to the public. Registration is required.
Brittany Horst, a registered dietitian, will host Britt’s Plate, a cooking class that discusses a wide-range of nutritional topics, at 10 a.m., on February 7, at LCC’s dining commons. Horst helps patients develop nutritional strategies to prevent side effects from chemotherapy, and supports them after their treatment to reach and maintain healthy lifestyle goals. Participants can sample prepared entrees and ask questions about their diet and how it relates to cancer.
Christina Ensinger, who holds a master’s degree in social work, leads Healing Together, a cancer support group that meets on the third Wednesday of each month from 10 to 11 a.m., and 6 to 7 p.m. As an advocate for both patients and families, she guides individuals’ transition from patients to survivors, while offering techniques to reduce stress and anxiety through ongoing psycho-educational support.
As the longest-running independent, community-based oncology and hematology practice in Lancaster County, LCC offers integrated, personalized cancer treatment and numerous on-location services including a laboratory, physician-directed dispensary and clinical trials.
