Lectures and Seminars

Lectures and Seminars

Since 2003, Cancer Pathways has offered educational lectures, at no cost, around the Puget Sound. The topics are cancer-related and have included lectures on specific cancer diagnoses, psycho-social and emotional issues, family-related concerns, integrative medicine, cancer prevention, death and dying, and some of the practical aspects having to do with cancer such as finances, wills, and resources. Our goal is to provide information that empowers people to make informed decisions that directly affect the quality of their lives.

Healthy Living Cooking Demonstration:

Crazy Good Kraut! with Cynthia Lair

Saturday, September 16th.  11:00am-noon
Cancer Pathways, 1400 Broadway, Seattle

While taking probiotic supplements may prove helpful, a more traditional and delicious Rx to maintaining a happy belly is the inclusion of friendly-bacteria rich foods, such as sauerkraut, kimchi, miso, yogurt and tempeh in the diet.  In this lively cooking demonstration, author Cynthia Lair will show participants how to make Latin American Curtido Kraut at home, and talk about how krauts can be a beneficial addition to everyone's diet.

Cynthia Lair is the author of the popular cookbook Feeding the Whole Family (now in its 4th edition) and Feeding the Young Athlete.  She has given a TEDx talk on "How to Cut an Onion" and performs improvisational comedy regularly.  She has been on the faculty at Bastyr University since 1994, and was the founder of Bastyr's Bachelor of Science in Nutrition & Culinary Arts degree program.  Find out what Cynthia is up to at
