Keynote – Food is Medicine

Food is medicine, but much of what is produced in commercial agriculture comes with the burden of sometimes poisonous inputs, reduced nutritional value, and many other health risks. Connecting how we treat our working lands, how produce our food, the food choices we make, and human health can be a complex puzzle to understand. Join us for a conversation about the connections between agriculture, conservation, soil health, and human health. Panelists are Michael Graziano, Diane Rogers, and Allison Sosna. This powerhouse panel of experts will discuss their work in nutrition, public health, advocacy, and more.
