Dr. Hakim is internationally known for her translational research and work on the role of phytochemicals such as green tea and limonene in modulation of oxidative damage and prevention of chronic diseases, such as cancer and cardiovascular diseases. She has been the Principal Investigator of several large-scale, behavior change interventions and clinical trials. These have focused on nutrition and cancer prevention, tea consumption and coronary heart disease, nutrition and tobacco, chemoprevention of lung carcinogenesis using green tea, including dietary interventions to study the effects of tea consumption on smoking-related oxidative stress and role of citrus-cancer association in Mediterranean diet.

The wide scope and significance of her work can be seen in range of her current other academic appointments at the University of Arizona, which include the Arizona Cancer Center, the Sarver Heart Center, the College of Medicine and the Department of Nutritional Sciences at the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.

The cost to attend the lecture is $25 ($20 if you book a reservation by March 1st). Women Impacting Tucson is a non-political network for women.
