The objectives of the Forum are to identify emerging high priority policy issues in the nation's effort to combat cancer and to examine those issues through convening activities that promote discussion about potential opportunities for action. Wendy has been a member of the forum for three years and has made meaningful contributions to its work.

In the Department of Nutrition Sciences, Dr. Demark Wahnefried serves as co-director of the Cancer Prevention and Control Training Grant from NCI and as Associate Director for Cancer Prevention and Control of the UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center.
