CLAN Cancer Support will welcome dietician, Maria Dow, to its October coffee morning within its Inverurie wellbeing and support centre.
During the morning, Maria will share tips on how to improve your health through diet on Monday, 1st October from 10.30am.
Maria has recently supported CLAN Cancer Supports Counterweight@CLAN programme at CLAN House in Aberdeen which helped people to look at weight management after cancer treatment.
Maria said: “Many people who are affected by cancer wish to make changes in the diet to improve their health. There is a lot of advice out there but it can be confusing and hard to follow. I hope to talk about some general principles that people can try to use if they wish.”
Fiona Cormack, area manager for CLAN Inverurie, commented: “We are delighted to welcome Maria Dow to our coffee morning in October. People attending our drop in often discuss what they are cooking and eating and what would do them the most good. It is great to have a qualified dietician to give a talk and answer questions.”
CLAN Inverurie offers information and support to people with a cancer diagnosis and their families. The centre is open on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday and also provides one-to-one counselling, complementary therapies aimed at pain and stress relief and various activity and social groups. A coffee morning is held on the first Monday of the month.
