With Laura Pole, RN, MSN, PCNS

Getting well never tasted so good! 

Chronic inflammation in our bodies has been connected to impacting chronic illness, including cancer. Join chef and oncology nurse, Laura Pole, and learn about diets that can help to reduce chronic inflammation.  You will learn to prepare delicious, anti-inflammatory foods.  You’ll find out how to use herbs and spices as anti-inflammatory power houses.  Best of all, you’ll share a delicious meal with your classmates who are also exploring an anti-cancer journey.

*Please Note: Every individual’s needs are unique. We aim to offer a variety of health-promoting options for each individual to consider, but do not prescribe the specific dietary content of any program for anyone.

Suggested donation: $25, includes health-supportive meal and all recipes

Our programs are open to the community, and tailored to meet the needs of people affected by cancer. Classes and workshops are free or low cost on a pay-as-you-can basis, ensuring that our programs are accessible to everyone.
