These side effects make getting proper nutrition a challenge. To improve the lives of cancer patients, leading cancer centers in the U.S., including Mayo Clinic, have formed the nonprofit Cancer Nutrition Consortium. Through research and collaboration with health, industry and culinary experts, the Cancer Nutrition Consortium offers recipes and resources for those undergoing cancer treatment.

On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Paul Limburg, a Mayo Clinic gastroenterologist, and Teresa McJoynt, a Mayo Clinic representative with the consortium, will discuss nutrition during cancer treatment. Also on the program, Dr. Peter Grahn, a Mayo Clinic neurobiology researcher, will share how a devastating injury inspired a career. And Dr. Benjamin Brown, a Mayo Clinic neurosurgeon, will explain the latest in stroke treatment interventions.
