Brand Spanking New SWOG Leadership

July 18, 2014 - Gary Goodman, Co-Chair of SWOG's Prevention Committee since its inception in 2008, recently announced his intention to step down from that role, to allow younger colleagues in the field to step forward. Today I'm happy to inform you we have selected one of Dr. Goodman's outstanding colleagues to step forward into that leadership role! Dr. Marian Neuhouser, of the Cancer Prevention Program at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, is that new Co-Chair. She will join Dr. Powel Brown as Co-Chair of SWOG's Prevention Committee.

Dr. Neuhouser is a nutritional epidemiologist with a career focus on cancer prevention and with long-term interests and commitments in the areas of physical activity, energy balance, diet, and nutrition. She has been active in many of the most notable prevention studies, including the Women's Health Initiative and the Carotene and Retinol Efficacy Trial (CARET), as well as SWOG's landmark PCPT and SELECT. Currently Vice-President-Elect of the American College of Nutrition, she will serve as President of that organization in 2016-2017.

SWOG Associate Chair for NCORP, Frank Meyskens, notes that Dr. Neuhouser's background and experience are a wonderful fit with our Prevention Committee (and the rest of SWOG): "She has outlined an exciting menu of activities that complement current activities and strengths of Co-Chair Powel Brown." She will present her vision, which encompasses lifestyle and special populations working groups, in addition to enhanced engagement in global cancer prevention efforts, at the Prevention Committee session in Chicago in October.

I want to personally thank Dr. Goodman for his years of exemplary service in co-chairing our Prevention Committee, and for his commitment to continued close involvement in the Committee's work going forward. I also thank the Prevention search committee, led by James Wade of the Central Illinois CCOP, which from many strong applications presented three outstanding finalists for the role. Under Dr. Brown and Dr. Neuhouser, SWOG will continue to field the premier cancer prevention team and lead prevention efforts among the NCI network groups.
