Nutrition services for cancer survivors

Tipped over bag of fruits and vegetables.

Nutrition is an important part of survivorship care. Anyone who has been treated for cancer at Nebraska Medicine can have an outpatient visit with a registered dietitian nutritionist. 

To schedule a consultation, talk to your doctor or nurse case manager and ask for a referral. Once we have received the referral, one of our schedulers will call you to set up a visit in person or by phone. 

Nebraska Medicine’s registered dietitian nutritionists have professional training in medical nutrition therapy. The team of registered dietitian nutritionists at the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center specializes in nutrition for cancer care and survivorship recommendations.

Always read headlines and articles carefully. Try to rely on scientific consensus rather than individual recommendations. Below are some reputable nutritional information sources.
