Expert panel will feature recipes and tips specifically for cancer survivors and families

Cooking and eating healthfully can be challenging, especially if you are undergoing cancer treatment, recovering from cancer, living with cancer, or living cancer-free. That’s why SVMC has invited Registered Dietitian Kristin Irace; Medical Oncologist Charlene Ives, MD; Executive Chef Laura LaCroix; and Radiation Oncologist Matthew Vernon, MD—to show cancer survivors and their families how to increase the enjoyment of healthy meals.

A Cancer Survivors’ Cooking Party is free and open to all. The event is scheduled for 4 p.m. on Wed., Jan. 13 via Zoom online meeting software. Registrants will receive the ingredient list and amounts, so they can prepare in advance and cook throughout the presentation, if they like.
