Public Health as it Relates to Diet and Nutrition

This is a past event.

Join us for Part 1 of our 3-part "Public Health in the News" lunch and learn series. Suzanne Judd, Ph.D., will present on nutrition research, recommendations and fad diets.

There are some things we all experience every day, and one of those is eating. Since we all eat, one could argue we are all experts on eating; but many people feel they are not experts when it comes to the ideal diet.

While there is a plethora of sources out there describing what the ideal diet is or is not, many people still feel very confused about what the public health science says about a healthy diet. In this session, we will explore the process of public health nutrition research as it relates to nutrition recommendations. We will break down the ways in which the best diet for you is actually influenced by your own health and lifestyle goals.

Lastly, we will discuss popular fad diets. We will talk about why there are so many, whether or not they work, and where you can go to get solid information on diet for you and your family.
