Dr Jennifer Ligibel - Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Boston, USA

Dr Jennifer A. Ligibel speaks to ecancer at the WIN 2019 Symposium in Paris about the use of weight management, physical activity and nutritional interventions to reduce the risk of malignancy.

She provides an overview of the epidemiological association between these factors, especially the connection between obesity and the risk of developing cancer.

Dr Ligibel explains some of the lifestyle interventions that exist and mentions several trials that examine the impact of weight-loss and different diet regimes on cancer risk.

She also discusses how these strategies can be implemented and how these must become more personalised to the patient in the future.
