      We are truly fortunate to have someone like Dr. Campbell, with such
      national stature and respect, speak for our Society. We urge everyone
      to bring friends and relatives to hear his important message based on
      years of research.

      Dr. Campbell has been at the forefront of nutrition research for 40
      years. His legacy, "The China Study", is the most comprehensive study
      of health and nutrition ever conducted. Dr. Campbell is the Jacob
      Gould Shurman Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry at
      Cornell University and Project Director of the China-Oxford-Cornell
      Diet and Health Project. The study was the culmination of a 20-year
      partnership of Cornell University, Oxford University and the Chinese
      Academy of Preventive Medicine.

      Dr. Campbell received his master's degree and Ph.D. from Cornell, and
      served as a Research Associate at MIT. He spent 10 years on the
      faculty of Virginia Tech's Department of Biochemistry and Nutrition
      before returning to the Division of Nutritional Sciences at Cornell
      in 1975 where he presently holds his Endowed Chair (now Emeritus).
      His principal scientific interests, which began with his graduate
      training in the late 1950's, has been on the effects of nutritional
      status on long term health, particularly on the cause of cancer. He
      has conducted original research both in laboratory experiments and in
      large-scale human studies; has received more than 70 grant-years of
      peer-reviewed research funding, mostly from the National Institute of
      Health and has served on several grant review panels of multiple
      funding agencies lectured extensively, and has authored more than 300
      research papers. He is the recipient of several awards, both in
      research and citizenship, and has conducted original research
      investigation both in experimental animal and human studies, and has
      actively participated in the development of national and
      international nutrition policy. For more information on Dr. Campbell
      and The China Study, see article in the SFVS newsletter.
