Cancer patients and others with chronic disease are invited to join St. Catherine Hospital and Heartland Cancer Center for Kitchen Therapy cooking demonstrations and tips on ways to choose the healthiest ingredients, make food more appealing and spark appetites.

The first session in 2018 will begin at noon Jan. 18 at Heartland Cancer Center, 410 E. Spruce St.

During Kitchen Therapy, dietitians prepare and share samples of recipes, provide nutrition advice and answer questions to help patients cook up comfort at home.

Kitchen Therapy is scheduled for the third Thursday of every month, January through November. The program is free and open to the public, but registration is requested. To participate, call Viry Dummermuth at (620) 765-1443.
