Oncology

Our goal is to provide a forum for registered dietitians who work in oncology care (whether 100% of the time or 5% of the time) to share knowledge, experience, research and resources so that we can provide quality nutrition throughout the continuum of care from coast to coast to coast.  

Through our recent partnership with the Oncology Nutrition Dietetic Practice Group (ON DPG) of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (ON DPG), we have more opportunities to collaborate on important oncology nutrition initiatives.

Benefits of Membership
We offer key resources such as free teleseminars by members and invited oncology experts, free ON DPG webinars, plus links to valuable websites, patient education materials, archived oncology nutrition presentations and conference reports.
