Clara Maass Medical Center Presents Nutrition Support Group


Good nutrition is critical to an individual’s overall health. Eating well means eating a variety of foods to get the right nutrients your body needs to stay healthy and fight serious illnesses. According to the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition, a healthy diet combined with physical activity can help you reach and maintain a healthy weight, reduce your risk of chronic diseases and promote your overall health.

In an effort to help individuals make smarter, more nutritious eating decisions, Clara Maass Medical Center presents the Nutrition Support Group on Thursday, April 7 at 6 p.m. at Clara Maass Medical Center in Belleville. Led by a Registered Dietitian, this month’s theme is “The Power of Protein” and will discuss the importance of nutrition, as well as the role it plays in relation to a cancer diagnosis and treatment-related side effects.

All are welcome at this support group, taking place at The Cancer Center at Clara Maass, located in the Continuing Care Building at One Clara Maass Drive in Belleville. For more information, please call 973.450.2328.
