Adele talks about “Meat and the Politics of Nutrition”

Adele Hite was invited to speak recently at the NC Choices Carolina Meat Conference on October 13, 2015, in Winston-Salem, NC.  Adele, who is also a registered dietitian, addressed the topic of “Meat and the Politics of Nutrition,” as part of a Nutritional Benefits of Meat presentation with Dr. Pete Ballerstedt of Barenbrug USA.  Her talk was based in her ongoing critical examination of the concept of “healthy food” and the historical, social, political, and technological contexts surrounding the creation and evolution of the U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

The Carolina Meat Conference was hosted by NC Choices, an initiative of the Center for Environmental Farming Systems (CEFS).  CEFS is a partnership of NC State University, A&T State University and the NC Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
