Tuesday, March 12, 2019 | Nutrition for Breast Cancer Survivors

After a diagnosis of breast cancer, survivors often re-evaluate their nutrition and health practices. Whether you are in treatment or post-treatment, please join Project Pink'd and Chandy Lockman-Hoke, one of only two Certified Oncology Nutritionists in the state to understand the difference between fact and fiction when it comes to nutrition and breast cancer.  She will answer your questions during the live video broadcast.

This program is complimentary to breast cancer survivors in NE & Western IA and is made possible by our many generous donors.

We look forward to sharing this journey with you.
