Summary

Food and nutrition guru Dr. Marion Nestle gave the packed auditorium at the Bloomberg School of Public Health quite a lot to think about during her presentation at the Tenth Annual Edward and Nancy Dodge Lecture on May 4. The popular author discussed a wide range of issues-from misleading food labeling to the unbelievable global market expansion by producers of unhealthy food products. Over 200 students, faculty members, and staff were on hand, along with several hundred internet viewers on CLF's first streaming live videocast of the annual lecture event.


The Edward and Nancy Dodge Lecture is supported through the R. Edward Dodge, Jr. and Nancy L. Dodge Family Foundation Endowment, established through the generosity of Dr. Edward Dodge, MPH ’67, and his late wife Nancy to provide core funding for the Center for a Livable Future.
