Tracey Birnhak Nutritional Counseling Program


Edith Christmas

Nutrition counseling by Registered Dietitians is available for all patients being treated for cancer at the Abramson Cancer Center. Our dietitians specialize in cancer nutrition and provide information based on sound nutritional therapies. We offer classes and workshops as well as individual advice. We also have a variety of education sheets to help.

Throughout treatment, a well-balanced nutrition plan can improve tolerance and response to therapy and promote recovery.

To make an appointment with the Cancer Center's Nutritional Counseling Program, call 215-615-0534.
