Food Be Thy Medicine: Examining Nutrition and Food Choice Through a Health Equity Framework 

March 4 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Proper nutrition is a building block of good health and a cornerstone of preventative medicine. We know that a balanced diet can reduce the risk for a myriad of diseases from diabetes to hypertension to cancer. However, conversations about diet and nutrition too often focus on individual choice, ignoring the structural and community factors shaping, and ultimately limiting, food choice. Food justice asks us to interrogate the systemic barriers to healthy food and the ways in which large corporate interests and government actions shape policy and endanger the health of the public, particularly marginalized communities. Join us for a panel discussion interrogating how food law and policy impact our food choices and contribute to disparate health outcomes.

Please join us for this 60-minute panel discussion featuring:

Panelists

  • Mike Jacobson, Co-founder and Senior Scientist, Center for Science in the Public Interest, Author of Salt Wars: The Battle Over the Biggest Killer in the American Diet
  • Hilary Seligman, Professor of Medicine, UCSF and Director of the National Clinician Scholars Program at UCSF
  • Andrea Freeman, Professor of Law, University of Hawaii, Author of Skimmed: Breastfeeding, Race, and Injustice
