Short Description
Southern Illinois Healthcare will be charged with hiring an oncology dietician to establish a new program for cancer survivors and their families. The grant will provide $65,000.00 to implement strategies between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020. The program will implement a holistic approach that includes nutrition classes and alternative treatment options to ensure the optimum health for survivors.

The pilot program will enhance the current survivor services provided through the cancer center. Although the project will focus primarily on cancer survivors and their families, some of the resources may be used to educate caregivers as well.

The application will be reviewed, evaluated and funded based on program need, availability of funds and history of efficient use of project funds.

Quarterly progress reports to the Department will be submitted by the applicant and will be used to track progress made towards achievement of the program goals and objectives. Fiscal reimbursement requests shall be made quarterly. Failure to submit required reports in a timely manner will result in reimbursement delays.
