CoxHealth hosts free dinner to help cancer patients learn about nutritional needs

Cancer affects many aspects of an individual’s life, including what he or she eats. After all, not only does a palate have a propensity to change, but so do nutritional needs. That’s why, on Aug. 18, patients and their caregivers can learn more about those new needs at a free dinner sponsored by CoxHealth.  

The event will be led by Melinda Lund, a CoxHealth dietitian. Lund will direct an interactive discussion on ways patients can adapt their diet to satisfy the needs of their bodies, especially when faced with new demands.

The session will be held at Hulston Cancer Center (3850 S. National Ave., Springfield) from 5:30 – 7 p.m. It is free to attend, but registration is requested by Aug. 16. Please call 417-269-5224 for more information or to register.
