Each semester the Rudd Center hosts experts in academics, advocacy, and public policy to discuss their work and its implications for the study of obesity, food policy, and weight bias. The Spring 2013 Seminar Series will include Dan Harris, ABC News Anchor and Correspondent (held at the Yale Peabody Museum), and Glenn E. Schneider, MPH, and Nikki Highsmith Vernick, MPA, from the Horizon Foundation, which recently launched Howard County Unsweetened, which will be the most evaluated sugary drink campaign in the country.
The series will begin on January 15 at 12:30 pm with Jane Martin, MPH, Executive Manager of Alcohol and Obesity Policy at Cancer Council Victoria. Her seminar is titled, Obesity Prevention Policy in Australia – Perspectives from the Land Downunder.
Unless otherwise noted, seminars are held at the Rudd Center. The seminars are free and open to the public, with limited seating.
