Research Summary

Nutrition in cancer patients

Research Focus/Overview

It is well known that cancer patients often experience weight loss due to inadequate intake and side effects from therapy, such as nausea or changes in taste. I am interested in developing a Nutrition Program that provides best available evidence-based education to patient families and serving as an academic research program to study areas such as food accessibility, micronutrient deficiences, and clinical outcomes based on nutritional status.
