As this country prepares for a change in leadership, attracting attention to food issues must be part of the debate. The same overarching themes that have dominated the political landscape for decades persist: the environment, water, immigration, domestic and global security, civil rights, education, justice, and economic opportunity. Each of these is intertwined with our food system. Understanding the challenges and interconnections and offering solutions is fundamental to meaningful change.
Featuring a keynote address by: Sonia Angell, MD MPH, Deputy Commissioner, Division of Prevention and Primary Care, New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene
Featured speakers include: the Honorable Donna Shalala, the Honorable Daniel Glickman and the Honorable Margaret Hamburg as they discuss the future of food law and policy in the United States.
