Healthy Eating Program Classes and Seminars

All events are held at Moores Cancer Center. For more information, call 858-822-2237 or email healthyeating@ucsd.edu

Cooking Classes

Each class includes a short introduction of the nutrition topic, followed by a demonstration, taste testing, and discussion of the recipe's nutrient content and how to purchase, prepare and serve the dishes. You'll receive a hard copy of the recipes with nutrient content per serving and other educational materials. Recipes are designed to not only tie into the nutrition theme, but to taste good and be convenient and easy to prepare. Seeing the process and enjoying the food are important factors that can motivate healthy eating and cooking outside of the class.

Nutrition Seminars

Our seminars provide evidenced-based nutrition information for cancer prevention and an opportunity for discussion with a nutritional professional. Our repeating monthly seminar, Fighting Cancer with Diet and Physical Activity, gives an overview of how diet and physical activity can play a role in cancer prevention and survivorship. In the Healthy Eating Program Nutrition Seminar Series, the topics change each month, allowing us to address topics of interest to cancer survivors.
