By Suzanne Dixon, MPH, RD:

I have spent my career working with individuals affected by cancer and have seen first-hand that knowledge truly is power. I have a strong passion for helping people get the information they need to enhance their health and prevent cancer, and for others to cope with a diagnosis so they can move forward in their lives in a positive way.
