About Me

The whole-body approach to patient care first attracted Holly Lovett, Clinical Oncology Dietitian, to City of Hope. Recounting the wisdom of Hippocrates, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food,” Lovett emphasizes the importance of diet in helping patients through cancer treatment.

“Food can help with stimulating the immune system, slowing the growth rate of cancer cells, preventing malnutrition and reducing inflammation,” says Lovett.

Lovett completed a bachelor’s degree in Food, Human Nutrition and Hospitality at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville in 2007. After graduation, Lovett pursued a graduate degree additional to the required internship. As a dietetic intern at the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond she gained expertise in both clinical and community-based nutrition, as well as food service management. In 2008, she earned a master’s degree in Nutrition and Food Management at the University of Central Oklahoma. 

Lovett began working in the nutrition field in 2004, when she served as a dietetic technician at two regional health centers in Arkansas. Since 2008, she has worked as a clinical dietitian in Georgia. She also was a health educator for two Maryland- and Mississippi-based companies. Lovett joined City of Hope Atlanta in December 2013.

Lovett is a registered dietitian with the American Dietetic Association and a licensed dietitian with the Georgia Board of Licensed Dietitians. She is a member of both organizations. She holds a Certificate of Training in Adult Weight Management through the Commission on Dietetic Registration.

At City of Hope, Lovett works with patients to develop personalized nutrition plans to meet their needs. She takes the time to develop relationships with her patients so she can better understand the treatments they are undergoing and the lifestyle they want to maintain. With that knowledge, Lovett recommends dietary changes that can be made in conjunction with treatment, with the goal of ensuring the best outcome possible and helping patients live healthy lives.

Patient ratings
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 at our comprehensive care and research centers. Following industry best practice, star ratings and comments are only published for physicians with a minimum of 30 completed patient surveys.
