Clinical oncology dietitian JoAnna Zammiello believes that nutrition plays a crucial role in the treatment of people living with cancer. “I want my patients to live the best and healthiest life they can,” she says.
Zammiello studied nutrition and dietetics at the State University of New York College at Oneonta (commonly known as SUNY Oneonta). She earned a bachelor’s degree in 2005, completed a dietetic internship in 2009, and earned a master’s degree in nutrition/dietetics that same year. She is certified in food safety through ServSafe, and is a member of the American Dietetic Association.
Zammiello’s career as a dietitian began in 2007, when she worked as a nutrition educator with Cornell University Cooperative Extension’s Eat Smart New York! (ESNY) nutrition education program.
In 2009, she joined the food services company Sodexo as a clinical dietitian. Later, she served as clinical nutritional manager at North Central Bronx Hospital, ensuring that patients received high-quality nutrition care and coordinating the efforts of the clinical staff and hospital dietitians.
Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) has been a good match for Zammiello’s patient-focused approach. Joining as a clinical oncology dietitian in 2012, Zammiello has developed a nutrition clinic in the radiation department and has spearheaded the use of food service software to establish an optimal culinary plan for our patients.
She enjoys working with patients to find ways to provide nourishment for whatever challenges they are facing. “I want my patients to live the best and healthiest life they can,” says Zammiello.
Currently working toward specialty certifications in nutrition support and oncology, Zammiello says her favorite food remains a childhood favorite: peanut butter.
