Every year in March ECPC organises the Nutrition Awareness Month to increase awareness of this crucial, yet often neglected, component of cancer prevention, treatment support and rehabilitation. 

For this year's edition, we have gathered several stories of cancer patients and cancer survivors who told us about their experiences. The booklet was endorsed by the European Federation of the Associations of Dietitians (EFAD) and the Medical Nutrition International Industry association (MNI).

The European Commission integrated nutrition in the EU's Beating Cancer Plan that was published on the 3rd February 2021: 'Cancer risk is heightened by the joint effects of unhealthy diets and physical inactivity'. Now it is the right moment to tackle this issue and ECPC would like to ask for the support and dissemination of this campaign.

Please, feel free to join the campaign at any time during the month

How can you help? 

You can follow the proposed calendar that includes the banners and images to be used during the campaign but feel free to share the posts at any point during this month and even translate the posts to your own language! Do not forget to use the hashtag #NutritionAwarenessMonth.
