“I enjoy the supportive, smiling and positive energy at Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA),” says Renee Pieroth, clinical oncology dietitian at CTCA at Eastern Regional Medical Center.
Pieroth joined CTCA in October 2012. In her role, she assesses patients’ nutritional status and provides individualized nutrition therapy to help patients maintain their health during cancer treatment. She says she appreciates the patient focused model at CTCA: “CTCA practices integrative care and supports the important role nutrition plays in overall quality of life and treatment.”
Prior to joining CTCA, Pieroth was a clinical dietitian at Riverview Medical Center in Red Bank, NJ. There, she formulated nutrition care plans and provided nutrition education and counseling. Before then, she was a registered dietitian and group exercise instructor at Somerset Valley YMCA and Powerhouse Gym in Hillsborough, NJ.
Pieroth earned a bachelor’s degree from the Allied Health-Coordinated Dietetics Program at the University of Connecticut, where she graduated magna cum laude. During her undergraduate career, she studied abroad at The Institute at Palazzo Rucellai in Florence, Italy. Following school, she completed an Understanding Oncology course at the University of California, San Diego Extension, which fueled her interest to learn about oncology nutrition.
A vegetarian, Pieroth is involved with Community Supported Agriculture to promote local farmers and plant-based diets. Her passion for health promotion is evident in her blog and contributions to farmtophilly.com. She also enjoys exercise, including training for half marathons, as well as traveling and tasting local cuisine from all over the world.
