ABOUT THE SCHOOL

Founded in 2017, The Oncology Nutrition Institute (ONI) is proud to have trained medical and nutrition professionals from around the globe while offering free and small fee classes and programs to the public. Our flagship 250-Hour Oncology Nutrition Consulting (ONC) certification program is the first of it's kind, providing evidence-based nutrition education to practitioners in the emerging field of metabolic oncology nutrition therapy. The school is 100% virtual and is based in Maine, USA.  From research to recipes, test tubes to the dinner table, ONI is leading the global conversation around the importance of integrating metabolic nutrition therapy into the standard of cancer care and prevention initiatives with a food-first education focus.
