Dr. Alice Ammerman (Professor, Department of Nutrition, Gilling School of Global Public Health, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill) will speak on her social entrepreneurial efforts related to healthy food access as part of the 2018-19 Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences Colloquium series.
Good Bowls are a healthy frozen meal product made from locally sourced food and based on the Mediterranean Diet, adapted for southern taste preferences. Using the pay-one-give-one or “pay what you can” model, those who can, pay a little more so everyone can afford the same healthy product.
Alice Ammerman’s research activities include design and testing of innovative clinical and community-based nutrition and physical activity intervention approaches for chronic disease risk reduction in primarily low income and minority populations. Her recent research interests focus on school nutrition policy associated with childhood obesity, sustainable agriculture as it relates to improved nutrition, and social entrepreneurship as a sustainable approach to addressing public health concerns.
Light refreshments will follow the talk in Ritter Annex 992.
WHEN: Thursday, Nov. 8 from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m.
