The Bismarck Cancer Center kicks off their “Live Well” series on January 8.  This 12-week nutrition program focuses on empowering cancer survivors with the tools they need to live healthy, happy lives after they have completed treatment.  The deadline to register for “Live Well” is January 3rd, and the program is offered at no cost through the Bismarck Cancer Center Foundation. For more information or to register, please contact Amanda Ihmels at 222-6154 or aihmels@bismarckcancercenter.com.

Throughout the program, local cancer survivors will attend individual and group education sessions with a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) who is board certified in oncology nutrition. The RDN will educate survivors about healthy eating strategies, including tips on eating out, reading nutrition labels, and cooking and recipe modification. Individual sessions are designed to meet individual needs, help problem solve and goal set. Group sessions are to expand knowledge, to provide tools and to practice strategies discussed throughout the 12-weeks series. “Live Well” will also feature several guest speakers. These health-care professionals will cover topics such as emotional health, exercise, and supplement use.
