A north east charity will welcome a dietician to a coffee morning at its Inverurie wellbeing and support centre next month.

During the morning, Maria Dow will share tips on how to improve your health through diet on Monday, October 1 from 10.30am.

The event will be held at CLAN Cancer Support’s centre on Burnside Court.

Maria has recently supported CLAN Cancer Support’s Counterweight@CLAN programme at CLAN House in Aberdeen which helped people to look at weight management after cancer treatment.

Maria said: “Many people who are affected by cancer wish to make changes in the diet to improve their health. There is a lot of advice out there, but it can be confusing and hard to follow. I hope to talk about some general principles that people can try to use if they wish.”

Fiona Cormack, area manager for CLAN Inverurie, added: “We are delighted to welcome Maria Dow to our coffee morning in October.

“People attending our drop-in often discuss what they are cooking and eating and what would do them the most good. It is great to have a qualified dietician to give a talk and answer questions.”

CLAN Inverurie offers information and support to people with a cancer diagnosis and their families.

The centre is open on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday and provides one-to-one counselling, complementary therapies aimed at pain and stress relief and various activity and social groups.

A coffee morning is held on the first Monday of the month.
