JoAnna Hazard is the Manager of Clinical Oncology Dietetics at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), Philadelphia. Hazard strives to empower each patient with education to help them to choose nutrient-dense foods and beverages that may strengthen their bodies and help them complete their treatment without interruptions.
“My goal is to help patients maintain or increase their strength and energy through proper nutrition,” she says. “By focusing on the whole-person needs of each patient, I can provide personalized nutritional plans,” she says. “I am continually involved in my patients’ care and informed of each step of their treatment. This allows me to stay on top of treatment side effects that may impact their nutritional status.”
Hazard joined CTCA® in 2012 as a dietitian and was promoted to manager in 2018. Through continuing education and training, Hazard translates current nutrition research into new innovative offerings provided by the team of oncology dietitians.
Hazard completed a Bachelor of Science degree in Nutritional Sciences from The State University of New York College at Oneonta in Oneonta, New York. She then completed a Master of Science degree in Human Nutrition from the same school. Prior to joining to CTCA, Hazard was a leader among clients, peers and other healthcare professionals providing nutritional support in a variety of settings for more than 10 years.
Hazard is married and enjoys spending time with friends and family. Her favorite activity is to take road trips through foreign countries with her husband to discover new places and try new foods.
Patient ratings and comments
Star ratings and comments are only available for medical, radiation and gynecologic oncologists. Gynecologic surgical offerings are not included at this time due to a different survey tool required to evaluate these services. CTCA uses a validated Press Ganey® survey, which captures patient experience feedback for the primary oncology services of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Following industry best practice, star ratings and comments are only published for physicians with a minimum of 30 completed patient surveys.
