Free class offers nutrition, diet tips for breast cancer survivors

INDIANAPOLIS -- Aug. 24, 2007 -- Breast cancer survivors can learn about nutrition, diet, and cancer during an upcoming class at the Indiana Cancer Pavilion.

"Eating to WIN: Exploring the Role of Nutrition in Women's Health" is scheduled for 1:30-3 p.m. Monday, Sept. 10 in Room 102 at the pavilion, 535 Barnhill Drive.

This class will explore healthy eating, low-fat diets, and guidelines for activity. The Women's Intervention Nutrition Study (WINS) will be discussed, which suggests that reduced levels of fat may decrease the risk of breast cancer recurrence.

The class -- which is free and open to the public and led by Anna Zufall, a registered dietitian -- is offered through the Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center's CompleteLife Program. CompleteLife provides support and services for cancer patients and their families from diagnosis and treatment into survivorship.
