Diet is thought to be responsible for about 30 to 40 percent of all cancers. A Franciscan Health Cancer Center dietitian will describe the role nutrition plays in cancer prevention at a free online seminar.

The seminar will be 9-10:30 AM CST on Saturday, Sept. 19. Online registration for this free event must be done by Sept. 18 at

No food or diet can prevent cancer, but some foods can reduce your cancer risk and improve your overall health by boosting your immune system. At the virtual seminar, Abby Emerick, RD, CD, CSO, a registered dietitian, will explain the benefits and examples of a healthy diet to help lower your cancer risk. She will also share two recipes via a virtual cooking demonstration that you can try at home.

This free event is made possible with support from Franciscan Health Cancer Center, Little Red Door Cancer Agency and the Indiana Breast Cancer Awareness Trust.
