Registered Dietitians at UNC Rex Cancer Care

Maintaining good nutrition is extremely important when beginning cancer treatment. At UNC Rex Cancer Care, we offer the expertise of registered dietitians who are board certified specialists in oncology. The nutritional needs of cancer patients differ from those of healthy individuals. We know the needs of each patient are different as well. That is why Rex offers specialists devoted solely to the nutritional needs of our cancer patients.

Our registered dietitians conduct complimentary one-on-one general nutrition sessions with patients and provide nutritional management during their treatment. These consults are specially tailored to meet the needs of each patient. Patients will learn how to maintain proper nutrition at the start of cancer treatment and how to cope when experiencing treatment side effects.
