A Conversation About Cancer and Nutrition Hosted by Carol Van Andel

Although there is no shortage of purported “anti-cancer” diets in popular culture, there still are many unknowns about the relationship between nutrition and cancer.

Van Andel Institute’s Dr. Evan Lien is working to change that. Using the latest technologies, Dr. Lien investigates how certain nutrients affect cancer growth — and works to identify evidence-based dietary strategies to enhance current and emerging cancer treatments.

Dr. Lien will give attendees an inside look at what we know about nutrition’s impact on cancer — and what we don’t — and discuss how new breakthroughs could inform tailored dietary strategies to combat cancer.

Individual tickets for this event are $100.

Suggested attire is business attire. Complimentary valet at the main entrance.

Evan Lien, Ph.D.
