The number of cancer survivors in the United States will grow to over 25 million in the next decade. Remarkably, over 50% of cancer survivors are overweight; 80% eat less than 2.5 cups of produce a day; and over 50% are inactive. These factors contribute to high risk of cancer recurrence, comorbidity, and all-cause mortality. Yet the encounter with cancer provides a "teachable moment" - an appreciation for health and an opportunity for empowerment. A major obstacle to supporting survivors during their post-treatment journey is that, though there are evidence-based guidelines for survivorship care, strategies for achieving durable changes in behavior are still being explored. There is a need for comprehensive and holistic lifestyle interventions that are feasible, effective, and sustainable. This presentation will guide dietetic practitioners through the development, implementation, and evaluation of several theory-driven and garden-based interventions resulting in improved health outcomes for survivors.
