AICR Leadership

Fighting For a Better Future

AICR’s leadership team works with scientists, healthcare professionals, and policymakers to improve the state of cancer research and education. Deeply dedicated to our mission, our leadership manages a wide range of patient service programs, community education initiatives, and fundraising efforts.

AICR believes the end of cancer begins with research and education.

Science shows that about a third of the most common cancers can be prevented through healthy diet and lifestyle choices and, as President of AICR and the WCRF global network, I believe this lifesaving message is worth sharing.
