Science Says expert series

Many of us have been working overtime to take care of ourselves for the past two years, and we deserve a collective high five! But it's hard: Americans are exercising less, and eating and drinking more, than before the pandemic. And we still face obstacles to routine health care and screenings.

Join us for Science Says on Tuesday, February 1, to explore science-based strategies to renew, refocus — and reduce your risk for cancer and severe COVID-19. Hear from experts on nutrition and exercise; meet a scientist who is combining mobile technology with the human touch to help people build better habits; and get beneath the surface of latest COVID news. We'll share how your support fuels this and other research, and we'll leave plenty of time to answer your questions.

Dr. Thomas J. Lynch, Jr.

Dr. Thomas J. Lynch Jr., is a distinguished health care leader, lung cancer doctor, and researcher. Since joining Fred Hutch as president and director in February 2020, he has led a robust scientific response to the pandemic while driving forward the cancer research at the heart of our mission. Prior to the Hutch, Tom led Yale Cancer Center and Massachusetts General Physicians Organization and served as chief scientific officer of Bristol-Myers Squibb. He holds the Raisbeck Endowed Chair.

Dr. Jonathan Bricker

Dr. Jonathan Bricker, a clinical psychologist and public health researcher, combines psychology with user-friendly technology to create smartphone apps and other tools to help people stop smoking and manage their weight — factors that can dramatically affect risk for cancer and COVID-19. He leads the Health and Behavioral Interventions in Technology (HABIT) research group at Fred Hutch.

Dr. Catherine Liu

Dr. Catherine Liu, an infectious disease physician, focuses on preventing and treating illnesses that affect patients with weakened immune systems. As a recurring guest at Science Says and other public forums, Catherine keeps the Hutch community informed about the virus's evolving impact on local and national health systems. And by sharing her own family's experience, she models risk management for others with young children.

Dr. Anne McTiernan

Dr. Anne McTiernan, a physician and epidemiologist, studies ways to prevent cancer or cancer recurrence through exercise and other lifestyle factors. Her research team was the first to quantify the effects of increased physical activity and weight loss on cancer risk factors. Anne is the author of several books, including two memoirs that chronicle her own journey to overcome disordered eating and panic attacks.

Dr. Marian Neuhouser

Dr. Marian Neuhouser, a nutritional epidemiologist, studies how diet influences cancer prevention and survivorship. Her research also focuses on ways to improve how scientists measure and track diet and physical activity among study participants. Marian leads the Hutch’s Cancer Prevention Program and is past president of the American Society for Nutrition.
