Nutrition Services at Winship

To schedule an appointment with the dietitian call (404) 778-5646.

Nutrition plays an important role in your care during and after treatment at Winship. Recommendations about food and eating for cancer patients can be very different from the usual suggestions for healthful eating. This can be confusing for many patients because these new suggestions may seem to be the opposite of what they've always heard.Our registered dietitians, Tiffany Barrett and Stephanie Boyea, are available to answer questions and address concerns about managing your diet, weight, treatment side effects, and supplement information.
