Find a nutrition professional
Significant evidence indicates that cancer patients can benefit greatly from counseling with a registered dietitian and, in particular, those with an oncology specialization. Registered dietitians who are Certified Specialists in Oncology (“CSO”) have at least two years of professional experience and a minimum of 2000 hours of nutrition practice in oncology. In addition, they have passed a national certification examination. In order to find a dietician with the CSO credential, click on the link below and a map of the United States will appear.

Contact the dietetic professional and arrange an appointment to receive counseling to help you with your nutritional issues.
