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.”
A new survey predicts that fitness trackers, high-intensity interval training and group activity sessions will be the top fitness trends in the new year – all of which can play a part in lowering the risk of cancer and overall good health.
For more than 30 years, the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) has been at the forefront of funding research and educating Americans about the link between lifestyle and cancer risk. We have made great progress thanks to the tremendous support from the scientific and health professional communities, as well as the general public who are invested in our research. However, our work is never finished, as awareness of the link between lifestyle and cancer risk is still too low among Americans.
