The NorthEast Myeloma Community meets to discuss proper nutrition guidelines and how what they eat can affect their well being. This group discussion will be led by Francesca Castro, a registered dietician involved in myeloma clinical trials at Memorial Sloan Kettering.
Come with one piece of nutritional advice that you're glad you received and are trying to follow!
As a level III clinical research dietitian-nutritionist, she focuses on providing whole food, plant-based diet interventions to patients within the Myeloma Service. She joined Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in December 2021. Her special interests include the impact of dietary choices on both cancer prevention and progression, gastrointestinal microbiome, and evidence-based clinical care. She earned her master’s in nutrition and exercise physiology at Teachers College, Columbia University, and her bachelor’s in biomedical science at the University of Central Florida. She is a registered dietitian-nutritionist with the CDR and has applied to be a certified dietitian-nutritionist in New York state.
Audrey joined the HealthTree Foundation as the Myeloma Community Program Director in 2020. While not knowing much about myeloma at the start, she has since worked hard to educate herself, empathize and learn from others' experiences. She loves this job. Audrey is passionate about serving others, loves learning, and enjoys a nice mug of hot chocolate no matter the weather.
