Talk: Nutrition in an age of obesity and diabetes

With obesity and Type 2 diabetes considered national epidemics, nutrition professor Marjorie Freedman will talk about her research at the Cafe Scientifique, set for Tuesday, Aug. 9, at 6 p.m. at SRI International headquarters at Middlefield Road and Ringwood Avenue in Menlo Park.

Ms. Freedman, a food industry veteran and now an associate professor in nutrition, food science and packaging at San Jose State University, will "decipher the updated federal guidelines and discuss her research on environmental correlates of obesity, portion size reduction, nutrition labeling, and food waste," a Cafe statement said.
