Cancer nutrition expert, Savor Health, provides cancer patients virtual nutrition support though its proprietary "Intelligent Nutrition Assistant" chat bot, Ina®.

NEW YORK, March 11, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Cancer nutrition expert, Savor Health, reports an increase in patient questions and concerns regarding COVID-19 which has caused them to stay at home to avoid contact with the virus. As a result, many cancer patients are not receiving the in-person nutrition support offered by their medical teams and hospitals.

In response to these concerns, Savor Health is offering free unlimited access to Ina®, the "Intelligent Nutrition Assistant," throughout the entire COVID-19 crisis so that homebound or otherwise isolated cancer patients and caregivers will have access to personalized, evidence-based nutrition and symptom management support 24/7 "on demand" via text on their smartphone. For access to Ina® patients can visit https://ina.expert/3awR1yU and enter their mobile phone number to begin receiving support via text.

Scientific research shows that when cancer patient's nutrition symptoms are addressed, their outcomes improve, they less frequently visit the ER and are admitted to the hospital, and they experience a better quality of life. Due to a shortage of dietitians (1 dietitian for every 2,674 cancer patients), 80% of cancer patients never see a dietitian. Savor Health created Ina® to address this shortage and ensure that all cancer patients receive nutrition support throughout their cancer journey.
