Nutrition Services

Ask the Nutritionist


Ask the Nutritionist enables cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers to ask the Dana Farber/Brigham and Women's Cancer Care Nutrition Services Department general questions about nutrition during and after cancer treatment.

We cannot answer every question submitted to our Nutritionists. If we do address your question, you will receive an email with information. If you or a family member are a Dana-Farber patient and have specific questions about managing your nutritional needs, please schedule an appointment with a Dana Farber nutritionist at 617-632-3006. If you receive your care at another hospital, please contact nutrition services at that facility.

You may view our Ask the Nutritionist page to read some recent questions and answers or search our extensive Health Library for cancer-related health information. Please note that we cannot give out medical advice over email. If you have an urgent nutrition question, please contact your physician and/or nutritionist.
