In May 2015, Dr. Anne McTiernan of the University of Washington and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, gave the third Arthur Schatzkin Distinguished Lecture in Nutritional Epidemiology. The lecture, entitled “Physical Activity & Weight Loss Effects on Cancer Biomarkers”, was based on Dr. McTiernan’s pioneering work. During her visit to DCEG Dr. McTiernan participated in several roundtable discussions with fellows and staff.
This annual lecture honors the memory of Arthur Schatzkin, M.D., Dr.P.H., a visionary scientist, mentor, and leader in the field of nutritional epidemiology. The lecture is sponsored by the NCI Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics, Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences, and Division of Cancer Prevention.
