Andrea Hamilton, M.S., RDN, L.D. is a registered dietitian and an important part of the Compass Oncology care team. Staying well-nourished during treatment provides the energy needed to fight cancer. Often that’s easier said than done. Andrea’s approach starts with listening. She strives to understand each patient’s needs and goals and works with them to develop strategies to keep their body fueled for a better quality of life. She is dedicated to nutritional education, tackling the common fears and myths around certain foods that often cause unnecessary stress. Andrea is also active in the Compass Survivorship program, giving survivors the tools to maintain healthy choices after treatment. She says “It’s so meaningful when a patient who is struggling leaves feeling happy and hopeful, empowered to try the strategies we’ve talked about. I’m honored to share these moments with them.” She enjoys yoga, hiking, cooking, and trying new plant-based recipes, and quality time with family and friends.
