2017 NHMU Lecture Series: Food

 

Food has the power to optimize good health and prolong life or make us susceptible to disease and illness. How we provide enough safe, nutritious food to feed the planet’s seven billion in a way that is both economically and environmentally sustainable may the question of our time. 
 
How can technology alter the way we grow food in our cities? What has changed in the ten years since the publication of Michael Pollan’s Omnivore’s Dilemma? How does the health of bees impact food production? And, what can we learn from the way people around the world approach food? Please join us as we hear from four preeminent minds in the world of food production who will explore what’s on our plates, how it gets there, who’s at the table, and who’s missing.
