On Wednesday, March 19th, the University of Redlands will host an evening with special guest speaker Marion Nestle, which will take place at 7:00 P.M. in the Orton Center. Marion Nestle is the Paulette Goddard Professor in the Department of Nutrition, Food Studies and is Professor of Sociology at New York University. Throughout her career, Marion has published several articles in a variety of professional publications, and has authored and/or co-authored nearly a dozen books that primarily address issues concerning nutrition, health and food politics.

Marion Nestle's research examines scientific and socioeconomic influences on food choice, obesity and food safety while emphasizing the role of food marketing. The lecture that Marion Nestle will be giving on Wednesday evening will no doubt incorporate her research findings, and the best way to become acquainted with her research is to read some of the work that she has published over the past years. The Armacost Library, which is located on the University of Redlands campus, carries several of Marion Nestle’s books, including her most recent work, titled Why Calories Count: From Science to Politics.
