Food and Nutrition

Nutrition is a significant aspect of a cancer patient’s treatment. Therefore, Hendrick Cancer Center strives to provide resources for patients to make healthy, nutritious decisions throughout the treatment process.

The Learning Center

The Learning Center within Hendrick Cancer Center is a wonderful resource for cancer patients, caregivers, friends, family and anyone looking for more information about cancer. Information found in the Learning Center is intended to help patients and their families gather reliable information about their diagnosis. The internet can be a great resource but can also contain misleading, disparaging information. Resources in the Learning Center have been selected because they are not only enlightening but encouraging, as well.

Tobacco Cessation Classes

The Learning Center also offers Tobacco Cessation counseling for anyone ready to quit tobacco for good. Cost is $25 for five sessions. For more information about any of the services the Learning Center offers, please contact them directly at 325-670-4488.
