Cancer survivors face many challenges after their initial treatment – including what to eat to support their recovery and maintain their health. Survivors and their families/caregivers, healthcare providers and any interested community members are invited to a free seminar on nutrition, healthy “superfoods” and the mind body relationship.
The Breast Education, Awareness and Treatment (B.E.A.T.) Cancer Coalition is sponsoring this seminar on Thursday, June 23 from 4:00-6:00 p. m. at Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center’s Hylton Education Center, conference room C. The medical center is located at 2300 Opitz Boulevard in Woodbridge, VA.
Presentations will include
- Dietary Patterns/Select Foods and Cancer Survivorship by Carlin Rafie, PhD, RD, from Virginia Tech’s Human Nutrition, Food and Exercise Department
- The Mind-Body Relationship and benefits of “Qigong” by Dr Young Ju
- Superfood Options and Preparation Techniques – a live demonstration (with samples) by Kathryn Strong, MS, RD, from the Virginia Cooperative Extension.
The seminar and parking at the Hylton Education Center is free, and registration is not required. For more information contact B.E.A.T. Cancer at 703-792-7034.
