Expert on Diet, Health and the Environment Speaks Tonight

Posted By on Wed, May 20, 2015 at 11:21 AM

What you eat affects more than you: As the USDA acknowledged for the first time this year, in its latest Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee report, our food system also has a huge impact on the environment.

Paula Martin, who directs Carnegie Mellon University’s Health Promotions Program, speaks tonight at the Carnegie Library of Homewood about using your diet to promote both personal health and the planet’s well-being.

Many food experts say the two goals are closely aligned.

The talk, titled “Understanding USDA Dietary Guidelines,” starts at 6:30 p.m.

The event, sponsored by the East End Food Co-Op, is free. Reserve a spot by calling 412-242-3598.

The library is at 7101 Hamilton Ave.
