You are invited to attend the AICR 2019 Research Conference on Diet, Obesity, Physical Activity and Cancer, which will be held on May 15-17 at The Carolina Inn in Chapel Hill, NC.  You can review all the conference information, including the program, here and register here.

You are also invited to share your research by presenting a poster at this year’s conference.  Posters must be related to cancer with a focus on diet, obesity, physical activity and cancer.  The extended deadline for poster abstract submissions is Monday, March 18th at 11:59 pm ET.  This is a great opportunity to share your research and network with colleagues and leaders in the field.  If you are postdoctoral scholar, you are able to enter your poster in the John A. Milner poster competition.
