Oncology Dietitians Honor the American Institute for Cancer Research With 2016 “Friend of DPG” Award

BOSTON, MA – The American Institute for Cancer Research today received the 2016 Friend of the DPG award from the national Oncology Nutrition Dietetic Practice Group at the annual Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Food and Nutrition Conference in Boston. The group recognized AICR’s contribution to the organization’s national project involving nutrition care for cancer patients, as well as a history of support for oncology dietitians.

“I am so proud that this impressive group of oncology dietitians recognizes and appreciates the work that AICR does in the field of cancer prevention and survivorship,” said Alice Bender, MS, RDN, AICR’s Head of Nutrition Programs.

“These dietitians are on the front lines, providing valuable service to cancer patients and survivors about their dietary needs. We rely on oncology dietitians to get the word out on AICR’s research that can help individuals post-treatment, and we know they rely on us for evidence-based resources.”

AICR provided the first and largest donation to kickstart OND’s project Access to Nutrition Care in Outpatient Cancer Centers. The funding helped support an Institute of Medicine workshop that evaluated the evidence, cost and value of nutrition care in oncology outpatient settings. The workshop was held in Washington, DC in March 2016.

“We value the partnership between our dietetics practice group and AICR, said Kelay Trentham, MS, RDN, CSO, Chair of the Oncology Nutrition DPG. “Support like this from AICR allows us to continue our advocacy projects. We couldn’t be more proud to have such a notable organization on our side.”

The Oncology Nutrition DPG is a national organization of over 2000 members. Oncology dietitians work in research, prevention, clinical treatment, recovery, palliative care and hospice care settings.
