Helping your body's health through your recovery
At Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center, we know that proper nutrition and your physical
well-being can play a big part in your fight and recovery from
cancer – whether you have been newly diagnosed or are far along with
your treatment. Both are important for prolonged survivorship, too.

Good nutrition is especially important
for people with cancer. Whether your treatments involve radiation
therapy, chemotherapy or surgery, nutrition strategies can help you

strategies that will help you in several ways, including:
- Avoiding complications
- Tolerating prescribed treatments
- Healing from treatments
- Protecting quality of life
- Maintaining functional capacity
- Planning for survivorship wellness
Our nutritional services also include a monthly nutrition and wellness class called Living Well - designed to help you develop a healthy diet after you've been diagnosed with cancer.
