How to Talk to Your Oncologist about Supplement Use and Why It’s So Important

Mar 5th 12:00 PM virtual program Virtual Program

/content/skcc/events/how-to-talk-to-your-oncologist-about-supplement-use-and-why-it-s

Facilitated by Ana Maria Lopez, MD, MPH Many patients with cancer are curious about or are taking supplements during and after active cancer treatment, but many don’t talk to their doctor about this! It’s important to tell your doctor that you are using a dietary supplement. The reason for this is that an active ingredient in the product could interact with — increase or lessen — the effect of other medicines you’re taking. Join us as Dr. Lopez discusses some common supplements and how to talk to your doctor.
