The Nutritional Supplement program, made possible through philanthropic partners of Novant Health Thomasville Medical Center Foundation and managed by Cancer Services of Davidson County, has distributed over 16,000 cases of nutritional supplements to patients in need over the last seven years. The Nutritional Supplement Program significantly reduces barriers by providing essential support to patients, addressing affordability challenges, meeting their nutritional needs, and effectively removing obstacles that may hinder access to necessary care.
