Our Program

fruits and vegetablesAt Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI), nutrition is an important part of care before, during, and after cancer treatments. Nutrition is an important part of the comprehensive approach to improving patient health and wellness.

HCI dietitians can provide the following:

  • Guidelines for balanced nutrition and meal planning
  • Nutrition guidance for specific cancers
  • Coping strategies for nutrition-related treatment side effects
  • Special diet management and meal planning
  • Management of tube feeding and IV nutrition regimens
  • Guidelines for nutrition supplements and antioxidant use during cancer treatment

Good nutrition can help patients tolerate cancer therapy better and with fewer side effects. Eating well can boost your immune system, reduce your risk of infection, help you stay strong, and heal after the stress of therapy.

Patients can meet with a registered dietitian at the Linda B. and Robert B. Wiggins Wellness and Integrative Health Center. To schedule an appointment, please call 801-587-4585, or visit the Wellness Center on the 1st floor of Huntsman Cancer Hospital.
