The Samaritan Cancer Program is offering a nutrition series for cancer survivors called “That’s My Farmer” that teaches healthy shopping, eating locally and the impact of fresh, wholesome foods.
The series connects participants with fresh, local produce and provides a recipe book and engaging presentations from registered dietitians, health trainers and medical social workers. Local cancer survivors are welcome, no matter where they received treatment.
Sessions begin in early September. The cost to enroll is $20 per cancer survivor, and attendees can sign up for the Lincoln City or Newport series.

Newport: Tuesdays, Sept. 12 to Oct. 10, 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Samaritan Pacific Communities Hospital, Center for Health Education
