The Cancer Center of Santa Barbara is pleased to announce the hire of Sarah Washburn, M.S., R.D., C.S.O., C.D., as an oncology nutrition specialist.

Washburn was most recently with the Fred Hutchison Cancer Research Center and the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, where she helped establish multidisciplinary nutrition, genetic counseling and survivorship programs.

With more than 10 years of experience, Washburn is passionate about providing tailored whole food nutrition recommendations and education to patients throughout the spectrum of their cancer experience. She is an integral part of a patient’s care team, working closely with physicians and other support staff.

For many, her personalized counseling leads to improved tolerance of treatment, optimal strength and immune function, reduced risk of recurrence and enhanced quality of life. These services are provided free of charge to patients receiving or recovering from recent cancer treatment.

Patients and caregivers looking to learn more about tolerable foods during cancer treatment are invited to join Washburn as she facilitates a free class from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. Thursday, July 12 in the Cancer Center’s Conference Room, 540 W. Pueblo Street.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
