Cancer survivors are invited to join us for a free 10-week program designed to promote healthy living through regular activity and good eating habits. The program, led by Mehreen Husain, MS, RDN, CSO, CNSC, Registered Dietitian and Certified Nutrition Support Clinician, will cover topics such as:
• Managing macronutrients (carbohydrates, fats and proteins)
• Eating out
• Mindful eating
• Meals on a budget
• Improving strength, core and movement.

Participants will keep a food diary/activity journal during the 10 weeks. Each session will begin with a weekly weigh-in, body measurements and a food diary/activity journal review, followed by a discussion of that week’s topic. Each session will end with 15 to 30 minutes of walking or simple exercise.

Interested individuals will be screened prior to joining the program and must meet established criteria related to their body mass index and digestive, cardiac and joint health. Patients must have completed their cancer treatments and not have any upcoming, scheduled surgeries.
