Global education forum to focus on obesity, food security and nutrition

UGA faculty from across multiple disciplines will discuss their efforts related to obesity, food security and nutrition during the seventh annual Global Educational Forum April 2 in Grand Halls A, B and C of the Tate Student Center.

The forum is a university-wide comprehensive platform for a dialogue on culture, teaching and research on topics relevant to a globalized economy. It brings together faculty scholars and students to share their perspectives and experiences related to this year’s theme, “Obesity, Food Security and Nutrition in Global Context.”

The conference will open at 8 a.m. with a keynote address, “The Global and the Local, the Physical and Mental: Anthropological Perspectives on the Causes and Consequences of Food Insecurity,” by Craig Hadley, an associate professor of anthropology at Emory University.
