"American Culture, ‘Big Food,’ and Our Health" presented byMichael Oldani, Associate Professor of Sociology, Anthropology, and Criminal Justice  

Do we eat simply for sustenance or is there more to think about this everyday activity?  Food fills our bellies, brings families and cultures together and is the center of many traditions which remind us of our shared past.  Food also is a source of power and struggle.  The way our food is grown, manufactured and marketed can be controversial.  What do we need to know about the food choices we make?  Nourish your mind this spring and join us for thoughtful discussions on food.

All lectures are free and open to the public, and are held on Mondays at 3 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall at Fairhaven Retirement Community, 435 West Starin Road, Whitewater.  Street parking is adjacent to the building. Unable to attend?  Links to videos of all lectures, including those from prior series, can be found at www.uww.edu/conteduc/fairhaven/
