Brown bag Feb. 20 on Nutrition 101: A Healthier You

Spend your lunch hour learning more about the latest nutrition science and what it means for you at a brown bag co-hosted by UC Health Sciences and Services and UC Agriculture and Natural Resources, 12 to 1 p.m. this Wednesday, Feb. 20, in Franklin Lobby 1 Conference Room.

The discussion, Nutrition 101: A Healthier You, features guest speaker Susan Algert, a UC Cooperative Extension nutrition advisor in Santa Clara County. (Jennifer Daubenmier, assistant professor of medicine at UCSF, will be unable to appear as previously announced, due to unforeseen circumstances.)

Algert will discuss how the food environment influences our ability to maintain a healthy weight by answering the question: How much weight would you gain by eating an extra chocolate chip cookie every day for life?

UC Health Sciences and Services provides leadership and strategic direction to advance the education, research and clinical service missions of the university’s 18 health professional schools and programs and 10 hospitals, collectively referred to as UC Health.

UC Agriculture and Natural Resources is the bridge between local issues and the power of UC research, spanning three colleges and one professional school, six statewide programs, nine research and extension centers and 57 local offices throughout California.
