Food Policy in the Next Four Years:
A Keynote by Oran Hesterman and a Panel with Betti Wiggins, Michelle Napier-Dunnings, and Amanda Edmonds:
Wednesday, April 5th from 5-7pm
Great Lakes Central Room, 4th Floor, Palmer Commons
As public health faces challenges of obesity, food insecurity, and their consequences, food policy can play an important role in the solution. What lies in the past, present, and future of food policy in the United States? How can we take action to promote public health under a new kind of presidential administration?
Following a keynote by Oran Hesterman of the Fair Food Network, SPH faculty Dr. Julia Wolfson and Dr. Andy Jones will moderate a panel featuring Betti Wiggins of Detroit Public Schools, Michelle Napier-Dunnings of the Michigan Public Health Institute and Michigan Food and Farming Systems, and Amanda Edmonds of the City of Ypsilanti and Growing Hope.
