The Harvard Food Systems Initiative (HFSI) is proud to present:
Eating for Personal and Planetary Health with
Frank Hu, MD, PhD, Chair, Department of Nutrition at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health
Stacy Blondin '07, PhD,
Behavioral Science Associate at the World Resources Institute
The Healthy Eating Plate clearly lays out that at least 75% of our plate should be filled with plants – fruits, vegetables and whole grains – for the sake of our personal and planetary health. Dr. Frank Hu, Chair of the Department of Nutrition at the T. H. Chan School of Public Health, shares what it is about plants that make them sustainable – both the nutrient density that sustains our bodies, but also the environmental practices that are better for the earth. And what about that other 25% of the plate? Plants can sustainably occupy that quadrant too.
Dr. Hu is joined by Dr. Stacy Blondin ‘07, Behavioral Science Associate at the World Resources Institute, who studies behavioral science and the keys to changing the way we think about, approach and present food for a more sustainable plate.
This event is free and open to the public. Registration on Zoom is required to receive the webinar link.
