Registration information:

Much of the recent research points toward the benefit of whole foods and a healthy plant-based diet high in fiber. No one nutrient or food appears to be most important for reducing colon cancer risk, instead it’s the combination of the thousands of healthy nutrients found in vegetables, fruit, whole grains, beans, peas, nuts and seeds working together that appear to best protect us against colorectal cancer.

Sign up for the workshop to find out more about this topic. For more information, please contact Kerry Clay, Community Health Educator for the Coastal Cancer Center at Sentara Virginia Beach General Hospital, at (757) 395-8686.
