January 29, 2020

Neli Ribbens, MS, RDN, LD, has joined the integrative care team at Goshen Center for Cancer Care. She provides patients and their families with nutrition therapy and individualized education from the start of cancer treatment through survivorship.

"Neli's passion for oncology nutrition and her holistic, team approach fit our mission to care for the whole person, not just the disease," said Randy Christophel, Goshen Health President and Chief Executive Officer.

Nutrition interventions created by Ribbens for patients focus on reduction of side effects like weight loss. They also promote optimal health during active treatment and recovery.

Ribbens' training and research complement her clinical practice as an inpatient and outpatient oncology dietitian. She holds a Master of Science in Clinical Nutrition from Rush University in Chicago, Ill., where she completed her dietetic internship. Ribbens received a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics from Illinois State University in Normal, Ill.
