Food, Public Health, and Social Justice

What Does the Food Justice Movement Mean for Public Health?

Former New York Times columnist and bestselling author Mark Bittman, currently a lecturer at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health, is hosting a weekly lecture series on the food justice movement, connecting the dots between the food system, public health, and health policy. Guest speakers—food experts, labor advocates, and environmental activists—will explore the impact of health disparities, nutrition, and climate change on our food security and supply.

All lectures are open to the public. Space is limited; Reserve your spot using the RSVP form.

All lectures will be held from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. at the Columbia University Irving Medical Center campus.
