Emerging research suggests that weight and Body Mass Index (BMI) are not the best ways to determine nutritional status. The dietitian will present the relationship between body composition and cancer prognosis. The presentation will highlight how the potential integration of body composition evaluation may help to promise individuals with cancer live longer and healthier lives. The program will include lifestyle therapy recommendations that include both physical activity and dietary modifications.
