Nourish: Nutrition and Breast Cancer
*During winter months, we recommend checking the schedule before attending the sessions, as dates and times are subject to change.*
Location: Sobeys Community Kitchen, 400 University Ave, Charlottetown
This program will take a deep dive into the lifestyle changes you may consider during and after breast cancer treatment. We’ll explore nutrition and physical activity, then take a closer look at hot topics, including soy, sugar and alcohol. We’ll also discuss healthy dietary patterns to reduce the risk of chronic diseases and cancer recurrence.
