American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) Webinar
Eating Patterns to Lower Cancer Risk: More than One Route to a Plant-Based Diet 
  Now on Demand


Program Description:
A predominantly plant-based diet is one of the key elements in recommendations to reduce cancer risk. Multiple ways to achieve this have been identified. In this webinar, we will explore several different patterns: the research behind them and ways that they can be used or adapted to make it easier for people to find a diet to lower cancer risk that works for them as a long-term healthy lifestyle. A question and answer session will follow presentations by Karen Collins, MS, RDN, CDN, and Sharon Palmer, RDN.

  • Translate lessons learned from different eating patterns to steps that can be applied to any eating pattern to enhance its healthfulness and flavor.
