Healthy Living Series

"Skyrocketing health care costs send the message that things need to change."
SFMV Members Lisa Bowe and Kris Johnson have lots of suggestions for those who want to change the way they eat. Their Healthy Living Series at Grace Lutheran Church begins on January 19th.

What To Eat

Dr. Marion Nestle, NYU professor of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health, will be in Toledo on Tuesday March 17th to kick off a series of events offering local and global perspectives and strategies on food production and acquisition. Dr. Nestle will speak at 7:30 PM at UT's newly renovated Memorial Field House, Room 2100.

The series is sponsored by the UT Departments of Environmental Sciences and Women’s and Gender Studies and the UT Society for Environmental Education and are supported by a grant for the Program for Academic Excellence.

In preparation for this visit, several groups are forming to read Dr. Nestle's new book, What To Eat. If you'd like to join a group, please e-mail us: .
