Revitalizing Public Health Nutrition: Strategies for the Future
Featuring Michael Puglisi, PhD, RD, Assistant Extension Profession, Nutritional Sciences, UConn

Food insecure, as defined by Merriam-Webster: unable to consistently access or afford adequate food.

Food insecurity is prevalent problem across many communities in the United States. It impacts a student’s ability to learn in the classroom, a parent or grandparent’s capacity to provide the essentials for their family, and the overall health of a community. Why then, do we find that participation rates in low income nutrition programs are declining, despite the prominence of need for this aid?

Professor Michael Puglisi will talk about the way nutrition guidelines and education have evolved over generations. Together we’ll explore the new initiatives that show potential for shaping the future of nutritional assistance programs, including strategies that target nutritional education, mindful eating and stress reduction. 

Join us for a fantastic conversation about the future of nutrition. All are welcome!
