Question

Dear OncoLink "Ask The Experts,"

I would like to meet with an oncology dietitian, but my doctor's office does not have one. How can I find someone in my area?

Answer

Katrina Claghorn, MS, RD, Registered Dietitian at the Abramson Cancer Center of the University of Pennsylvania, responds:

The American Dietetic Association has a "find a dietitian" page on their website. You can search by specialty area, just choose oncology from the list.
