knowledge is positive power

The Cancer Wellness Center’s lecture and workshop topics provide a wide array of educational and experiential opportunities. We present new topics each quarter to help you and your loved ones become well informed as you navigate a cancer diagnosis. Research has found that actually seeking information increases an individual’s sense of control, improves the ability to make decisions, reduces anxiety and makes communication with healthcare providers easier.

Spicing Up Your Diet for Cancer Protection

6 p.m. – 7 p.m.

Lori Bumbaco, RDN, CSO, LDN, Oncology Dietitian

For centuries, cultures have used spices to help ward off disease. Early research suggests that compounds in spices possess cancer fighting properties. During the program, the dietitian will explore the nutritional properties of spices and how to include them in a variety of ways in a healthy diet. A local spice merchant will sample hand-crafted spices and demonstrate culinary uses for spice blends and exotic teas.
