Royal Society of Medicine,1 Wimpole St, Marylebone, London W1G 0AE

This conference, in partnership with the Royal Society of Medicine, will explore the role of nutrition at multiple points in the cancer pathway. Whilst the evidence base for cancer prevention is growing and consolidating there is a growing need to:

  • understand the role of nutrition in chemotherapy (as well as the impact of therapy on nutrition and appetite)
  • provide effective strategies for nutritional support of end-stage care
  • understand the potentially distinct dietary strategies for prevention of cancer recurrence
  • develop the management of the co-morbidities associated with cancer survivorship

The conference will address the new challenges stemming from the improved prognoses following treatment for cancer.  It will cover the mechanistic, human and public health implications, and is poised to draw together international expertise at a timely point in the evolution of development of cancer management and survivorship strategies.

Early bird registration deadline: 6 November 2017

Registration will be open soon
