Dr. Brian Durie Featured in BBC Radio Program "Food, Cancer and Well-Being"
U.K. food journalist Sheila Dillon interviewed cancer patients, nutritionists, and cancer doctors—including the IMF's Dr. Brian Durie—for "Food, Cancer and Well-Being," an episode of Dillon's weekly show, "The Food Programme," which aired on BBC Radio Four this week. Dr. Durie, who blogs regularly about nutrition, told Ms. Dillon, "We need to have good food, an avoidance of bad food, so one can treat the cancer and improve the quality of life."

Patients, Caregivers Get the 411 on the Changing Health Insurance Marketplace
The IMF held its first in-person Patient Education Forum examining the impact of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) on cancer patients. "Health Reform and You," held this month in conjunction with the IMF's San Francisco Patient and Family Seminar, drew over 50 patients and caregivers, who learned about the new California insurance marketplace, as well as the current and future changes to Medicare. The speakers succeeded in "making a complex topic comprehensible," attendees said. The IMF will host two more in-person events in New Jersey and Chicago in the coming months. We will also be hosting a series of webinars to keep demystifying the ACA. READ MORE
