LUNGevity Expands Its Educational and Support Resources for Lung Cancer Survivors by Offering This Nutrition Platform
LUNGevity Foundation, the nation’s premier lung cancer-focused nonprofit organization, is pleased to announce the expansion of its partnership with Savor Health to bring Ina – Your Personal Intelligent Nutrition Assistant to those affected by lung cancer. Ina is a knowledge-based personalized nutrition technology expert platform for people with cancer.
Ina helps people with cancer eat healthy and stay well nourished throughout their treatment and beyond. People with cancer and their caregivers can communicate with the chatbot 24/7 to receive personalized, clinically appropriate, “on demand” nutrition support and guidance. Ina’s knowledge and advice is based on scientific evidence and the training of oncology-credentialed registered dietitians, nurses, and doctors who are experts in the needs of cancer patients. Ina® is HIPAA compliant, safe, and secure.
The nutritional needs of people with cancer vary from person to person, and not all patients have access to a registered dietitian who specializes in oncology nutrition. LUNGevity hopes that Ina® can perform this role, giving people with cancer and their caregivers access to supportive care.
“LUNGevity is excited to be the only lung cancer organization to offer this new service that will provide tailored nutrition guidance and advice to our patients,” said Katie Brown, Vice President of Support and Survivorship at LUNGevity. “When you are navigating a lung cancer diagnosis, nutrition can be an important part of your journey. Eating a well-balanced diet before, during, and after treatment can help you feel better, maintain your strength, and speed your recovery. It’s important that our community has the tools, such as recipes and nutrition tips, to help them succeed during treatment and beyond.”
LUNGevity offers the largest online network of support and in-person survivorship programs for all people affected by lung cancer. We are proud to add this nutrition-focused resource to our offerings, helping people live well with lung cancer.
