  • June 14: Boost Your Brain. People undergoing cancer treatment sometimes experience thinking and memory problems often referred to as “chemo brain.” Cognitive therapies and nutritional measures can help to alleviate these symptoms. Join Conner and Karen Brady, MS, CCC-SLP (Speech Language Pathologist and specialist in Cognitive Rehabilitation) to learn about practical ways to sharpen your brain with the help of simple daily behaviors and delicious foods.
  • June 28: Healing Herbs & Spices. What do garlic, ginger, pepper, turmeric, thyme and oregano (and dozens of other aromatics) have in common? They can help create an environment in your body that makes it harder for cancer cells to thrive. More tasty, cancer-fighting recipes coming your way!

Each workshop comprises a roughly ½-hour presentation followed by a 1-hour cooking demonstration. Everyone who registers will be sent a recording of the session, Conner’s PowerPoint slides and her recipes – even if you weren’t able to attend in person.

Facilitator: Conner Middelmann, nutritionist and 22-year cancer survivor, is a passionate advocate of eating whole foods that aren't just healthy, but delicious, too. With her joyful and practical approach to nutrition – anchored in the Mediterranean diet – she will show you simple, tasty and affordable ways to boost your nutritional health.
