Jan. 20: Your Health Connection. Are Diet And Cancer Related?
Does what we eat impact our chances of developing cancer in our lifetime? Do certain foods protect us while others hurt us? Join JaQuitta Williams for the February edition of Your Health Connection, Wednesday, January 20 at 6:00 p.m. as we explore the links. JaQuitta will be joined in studio by Registered Dietician Kiki Smalley-Frazier, and we’ll take your questions, live. If we are what we eat, can you eat in a way to avoid cancer?
What if you or a loved one is a cancer survivor? How and why should you watch your nutrition carefully?
Your Health Connection with JaQuitta Williams is community engagement from the Center for Cancer Research and Therapeutic Development (CCRTD) at Clark Atlanta University. More information about their good work can be found here.
