Tuesday, April 30, 2013 10:00 AM-Noon - at the home of Amy Katz, 45 Little Fox Lane, Westport, CT 06880
On April 29, friends of Pink Aid gathered at the home of Amy and Neil Katz for Pink Aid’s Inaugural Wellness Event. Pink Aid recently expanded its mission to include empowering wellness and survivorship. We were thrilled to present our first supplemental event on “A Holistic Approach to Overall Health, Nutrition and Cancer Prevention.”
The guests were first treated to invaluable insights from Barry Boyd MD Oncologist, Assistant Clinical Professor at Yale Medical School and one of the world’s top scholars of Integrative Medicine. Dr. Boyd’s groundbreaking studies and analysis utilize pure math and science to identify genetic, environmental, and nutritional influences on cancer, often dispelling myths. Some of Dr. Boyd’s fascinating findings include the fact that taller people are statistically more prone to cancer, a diet that includes soy is typically consistent with prolonged survival, and that caffeinated coffee in moderation is beneficial in cancer prevention.
Monday, April 29, 2013 1:00-3:00 PM - DoubleTree by Hilton, Scottsdale, AZ
This workshop will focus, through a selected series of patient case reports, on the use of diet, nutrients, exercise and pharmacologic approaches to target the insulin IGF pathway in the management of cancer. It will highlight the integration of these approaches within the conventional treatment setting to enhance response to treatment, reduce adverse metabolic consequences of therapy, and change long term cancer-specific and overall health outcomes.
Friday, April 26, 2013 3:30-4:30 PM - DoubleTree by Hilton, Scottsdale, AZ
Through a detailed review of the epidemiology of “western cancers” and the growing data, from both basic science and clinical research, on the importance of insulin signalling pathways in cancer biology, this presentation will provide a detailed understanding of the critical role of the insulin/IGF system in both the origins as well as the outcome of many cancers.
Monday, April 22, 2013 5:30-7:00 PM - Macaulay Honors College, CUNY, New York, NY
The rise of modern chronic disease shares a parallel history with the evolution of western diets. Join Dr. Boyd to discuss how we might improve health through diet and other integrative ways in the future.
