Programs: AICR's operating programs focus on research grant funding and public education. The Institute has channeled millions of dollars into investigations of the diet-cancer link. These dollars have fostered research at leading universities, hospitals and research centers throughout the U.S. and around the world. With the nation's most extensive program of publications on diet, nutrition and cancer prevention, AICR has distributed millions of AICR educational booklets and pamphlets to the public, and hundreds of thousands of copies of reference works from AICR have reached health professionals. Nutrition seminars, public service announcements and other consumer-targeted programs help to further promote AICR's message that diet plays a major role in cancer risk.

The package contained a short list of several of his neighbors and their addresses. The package was not requested and contained the name of a neighbor that he did not get along with. We decided to do some research and found this site. We are glad we did.
