February 24, 2020, 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM @ Bemis Hall
Come to Bemis Hall on Monday, February 24 at 12:30 pm when Judith Ann Foster, PhD discusses “The Obesity Epidemic: Why We Must Get the Science Right.” Currently, more than two-thirds of all adults and nearly one-third of all children and youth in the United States are overweight. More than a third of the country is now obese, making the U.S. one of the fattest countries in an increasingly fat world. Mounting research, including a 2016 study in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), suggests that U.S. life expectancy may be starting to decline for the first time since 1993. Most now believe that the increase in obesity is due to 1. the increase in average caloric consumption; 2. the increased consumption of refined carbohydrates high in simple sugars (fructose); and, 3. a sedentary lifestyle with little exercise. Unfortunately, the U.S. Low-Fat Diet Recommendations of 1977 may have contributed to the increase in weight gain.

Independent scholars who do research in history, the sciences, the social sciences and more, without being formally employed by an academic or research institution are publishing distinguished books and making important contributions to their fields. Sometimes only after you stop working fulltime can you pursue that passion you have been quietly studying for decades but never had the time to fully explore. Independent scholars and those interested in learning more are invited to join us on Friday, February 28 at 10:00 am for the first meeting of the Independent Scholars Gathering. If there is interest, the group will meet monthly to share resources and ideas, give feedback, and be a scholarly conclave!
