Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do. (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)
The Lifestyle & Cancer Symposium – Evidence to Action will address the gap between what we know and how we use that knowledge to change lives, improve health and reduce cancer risk. AICR will be presenting this symposium in partnership with the George Washington University’s Milken Institute School of Public Health Department of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences and the George Washington University Cancer Center. The focus of this symposium is “Evidence to action.”
Scientists from across the world gathered in North Carolina, Chapel Hill for the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) Conference, from May 15 to 17, 2019. As the only scientific conference that addresses the impact of diet, obesity, physical activity on cancer risk and outcomes, this conference presented the latest relevant research, discussed how this research is implemented in cancer prevention and patient care and faced the most pressing challenges and priorities in the field.
Only eight weeks to go until the AICR 2019 Research Conference “Diet, Obesity, Physical Activity and Cancer – Beyond the Blueprint.” We are so excited to present a truly outstanding meeting that will highlight the current evidence and most recent advances while, simultaneously, looking to the future – looking Beyond the Blueprint. Our Conference Planning Committee and speakers are at the very forefront of research into the role of diet, obesity, physical activity and cancer and they have created a program that captures the unique excitement of the current moment in cancer research.
