Nutrition Counseling

Herbals and Supplements

Dietary counseling is an important part of supportive care from diagnosis well into recovery.  This approach has been shown to improve quality of life and also to decrease the incidence of infections and any therapy-related side effects.

Our nutritionists help families understand the benefits of a healthy diet and the pros and cons of taking supplements.  They are also experts on the safe use of herbs during conventional medical therapy.

Our research nutritionist, Betsy Ginn is available weekdays from 9 p.m. to 5 p.m. Consults can be scheduled with an oncologist or with Betsy at (212) 305-5808 or by email at erg2140@tc.columbia.edu.
