All About Alumni: Happily Hungry - The Road to Building an Integrative Holistic Nutrition Program for Children Affected by Cancer and Chronic Conditions with Danielle Cook, MS

When it comes to the treatment of cancer in children, it is important to know how to recognize when an opportunity might present itself, how to identify a need and how to act upon providing solutions for a problem. Such is the story of Danielle Cook’s journey in creating a unique program for children undergoing cancer treatment, including their families and caregivers.

Hawthorn University All About Alumni Graduate Webinar Series welcomes graduate Danielle Cook, MS (MSHN 2014) for her presentation of Happily Hungry: The Road to Building an Integrative Holistic Nutrition Program for Children Affected by Cancer and Chronic Conditions on Wednesday August 3rd at 12 PM PST.

Danielle Cook, MS is an author (Happily Hungry: Smart Recipes for Kids with Cancer), educator and the founder of an outstanding nutrition program. Join the webinar as she discusses how the life-changing experience of her son’s cancer diagnosis drove her to go back to school, obtain her degree from Hawthorn University in Holistic Nutrition and create an integrative nutrition program. She will share how she juggled multiple presentations in differing venues and how she refocused efforts to create a more effective program. She’ll also share the cornerstones of making her program a success, discuss the logistical challenges and how she has adjusted the program over time to fit new environments. Her story will resonate as the proverbial “when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade” with constructive, practical, real-life experience from which there is much to learn.
