Nutrition Talk , Eating well after a cancer diagnosis

We are delighted to welcome Veronica Dick to ARC Eccles St on Tuesday the 19th of February at 5.30pm, to give a talk on nutrition.

There is a wealth of information available about diet and cancer in the media and online. From superfoods to fad diets, much of this information can be misleading and sometimes confusing. This Talk will  provide evidence based advice on eating well during and after cancer treatment for optimal health.
