Did you know that research suggests that only 5-10% of cancer is purely genetic?
Dr. Wolin will discuss leading research, by her and others, on the best ways to prevent cancer and improve your outcomes after diagnosis. Drawing on decades of clinical and public health research, she'll break down myths and talk about what strategies are most effective, and how to implement them in your own life.
