The AICR does an excellent job at translating what can be complex research regarding nutrition and cancer into clear, understandable terms for patients, caregivers, and other clinicians. The pamphlet and online resources provided by the AICR have been immeasurably helpful in my practice as an oncology Registered Dietitian.”
