Wendy Demark-Wahnefried, PhD, RD
Professor and Webb Endowed Chair of Nutrition Sciences, Associate Director, UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center
2012 Koopman’s Lecture – Presented by the TBCC Department of Psychosocial Oncology
Previous studies suggest that diet plays a major role in preventing cancer, as well as influencing the course of disease after diagnosis. This lecture will address current dietary recommendations for cancer prevention and control. The talk will cover what is currently known (and unknown) about the relationship between cancer and various nutrition-related factors. Answers to questions, such as “what is optimal body weight?” “What foods should I be eating more of?” “What foods should I be eating less of?” and “should I be taking nutritional supplements?” will be covered. In addition, time will be devoted to answering questions from the audience regarding diet and cancer.
