Cancer Survivorship Clinic

Our clinic provides services that help cancer survivors live well after cancer treatment. Patients receive psychosocial, nutritional and oncology evaluations, which may help manage the physical and emotional changes they may experience after cancer treatment. It entails reviewing the cancer diagnosis and treatment, consulting with doctors who diagnosed and treated the cancer, and identifying and creating management strategies to help patients cope with the physical, emotional and social effects of cancer and its treatment. The clinic assesses patients’ risk of other cancers and, if needed, refers them for cancer screening services. It recommends ways to improve their health through nutrition, exercise, weight management and stop smoking programs.

Food Pantry Program

The Food to Overcome Outcomes Disparities (FOOD) Program, initiated by the Center for Immigrant Health and Cancer Disparities, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, addresses cancer patients’ nutritional and quality of life needs. A dedicated food pantry was established that allows patients to pick up nutritious food supply during their treatment appointments.
