Connecting with health food educators: a great experience!

Dr. Steve Savage and me at Nutrition File Seminar, February 2014.

Earlier this year, I was invited by Alberta Milk to speak at its Nutrition File Seminar (Calgary and Edmonton) alongside some pretty terrific people including: Dr. Steve Savage, agriculture speaker, writer and myth-buster; Shirzad Chunara from Alberta’s Ministry of Agriculture; Terry Fleck from the Center for Food Integrity; and Herman Barkema, DMV, PhD and Professor of Production Animal Health with the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Calgary. We had the opportunity to speak to a room full of bright, engaged registered dieticians about different facets of the food production value chain.

Guess what I talked about? 🙂

Anyway, the good folks at Alberta Milk invited me to take my 45-minute talk and distill it down into a 1000-word article for the August issue of Nutrition File for Health Educators newsletter (a real challenge for a wordy-person like me).  Success! Here it is:

“Like ships in the night? Consumers and genetically modified foods: adrift in a sea of misinformation.”
