GCS Nutritionist Lisa Eisele to Start Series With

Georgia Cancer Specialists’s (GCS) “Alive and Thriving” health lecture series is back by popular demand. The first free seminar was held June 25, at 4:30 p.m., in the auditorium of the GCS Lake Oconee office in Greensboro (1000 Cowles Clinic Way, Magnolia Building; 706-454-0159).

Re-igniting the educational talks was GCS nutritionist Lisa Eisele, whose first lecture, “You Are What You Eat,” focused on four specific areas of nutrition:

  1. Caloric and fat content of fast foods and snack items, and how they contribute to the present obesity epidemic
  2. How to interpret the nutrition label on food packages
  3. The importance of exercise
  4. Portion control

“Bringing the ‘Alive and Thriving’ series back is a big priority for me,” said Eisele. “I enjoy teaching people about nutrition and what it can do for their bodies, and I’m looking forward to helping educate Lake residents.”

Eisele is the nutritionist for GCS’s Lake Oconee and Milledgeville offices. She specializes in weight management and cancer prevention, and is a member of both the Georgia Dietetic Association and the Middle Georgia Dietetic Association.

GCS is part of the Georgia Center for Total Cancer Care at Cowles Clinic. Drs. Victoria Afshani, Richard Loyd, and Deborah Sculco practice at the Lake Oconee office.
