Eating for wellness is topic for CLAN group in Ballater

The importance of diet and nutrition and how it can help optimise recovery is to be discussed at CLAN Cancer Support's monthly meeting in Ballater.

CLAN Cancer Support’s Second Chancers’ group will welcome nutritional therapist Cathy Clark to its get together on Wednesday, April 30, from 4pm to 6pm at Ballater Golf Club.

Open to anyone affected by cancer, attendees will receive a short presentation on healthy eating as a lifestyle choice and how it may be able to help support the recovery and well-being of an individual. There will also be the chance to taste a range of different foods and recipes alongside hearing about simple and practical health suggestions that people might find beneficial to their daily routine.

Gemma Powell, CLAN’s Aberdeenshire area service co-ordinator, said: “We often find that subtle changes to a person’s diet and lifestyle can help support them in their recovery and in their general well-being so we believe it’s definitely something to consider.

“We’re delighted to welcome Cathy along to the Second Chancers’ support group in what I’m sure will be an informative and enjoyable evening for all those who attend.”
