Derek Power a medical oncologist in Cork University Hospital is working on a project entitled 'Perception of Cancer Risks' with the Department of Nutrition and Dietetics in UCC. This UCC study is being led by Dr. Aoife Ryan, a lecturer in nutrition who has spoken at John McCormack's request for the Irish Cancer Society on a number of occasions. Derek is doing an online survey to assess the publics' perception of cancer risk factors. The more responders they get the more powerful the statistics will be.
They hope to present this work at an international cancer meeting and think the data will be very useful to anyone who has an interest in cancer care.
