Join Us For A Free Webinar Presentation - Dietary Targeting of Inflammation: Modification of Cancer Risk - Wednesday, August 31, 2-3:30 pm EDT - Presented by Cynthia Thomson, PhD, RD, FAND, FTOS
A significant and growing body of evidence demonstrates that inflammation contributes to cancer risk. Research suggests also that the inflammatory response may be modified by diet and dietary components.

This 1.5 CPEU webinar will examine the relationship between inflammation and cancer, as well as foods and dietary patterns that have been shown to impact the inflammatory response. Attendees will come away with the recognition that RDs can play an important role in positively impacting the health of patients and clients at risk for cancer by encouraging dietary interventions that reduce inflammation.
