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.
Classes and events
