Interview with Food Policy Expert Dr. Marion Nestle
Thursday, October 13th at 9:30AM, join us for an engaging discussion via Zoom with Dr. Marion Nestle as she reflects on the importance of food policy in our lives and how she achieved late-in-life success as a leading advocate for healthier and more sustainable diets.
Slow Cooked tells the story of how she built an unparalleled career at a time when few women worked in the sciences, and came to recognize and reveal the enormous influence of the food industry on our dietary choices.
