Dr. Laleh Talebian lost her father to stomach cancer when she was 15 years old. But after earning a PhD in biology, Dr. Laleh realized that 75% of cancers are entirely preventable. So, what can we do to make our wellbeing a priority and prevent disease? How do we build healthy eating and active living into our daily lives?
Dr. Laleh is a research scientist who specializes in cancer prevention and education. After seven years of working in a clinical setting, she left traditional medicine and its culture of sick care for entrepreneurship.
