You are what you eat. Just ask the registered dietitians at Georgia Cancer Center. The dieticians recently collaborated with local farms Clyde’s Fresh Produce and Adderson’s Fresh Produce to hold a farmer’s market for cancer patients this summer as part of the “Fight Cancer with Your Fork” series.
Cancer patients and Georgia Cancer Center employees will be able to sample dishes prepared from food grown at these local farms, as well as purchase the produce for use in their homes.
There will also be educational information available showing how a person’s diet can influence their risk of developing cancer.
The August market will be held noon – 3 p.m. Thursday, August 22.
