San Diego– San Diegans can learn about the connection between diet and cancer at a free workshop and cooking demonstration at Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine Tuesday, April 27 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. The Nutrition and Cancer workshop is presented by Scripps Cancer Center and Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine.

People who have cancer, and those who want to prevent cancer, require a nutrient rich diet that supports healing.

The workshop will be led by Cathy Garvey, a registered dietitian with Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine. Chef Palma Bellinghieri will demonstrate two delicious and easy-to-make recipes using anti-inflammatory ingredients.
