Menus of Change Conference Debuts in Boston

What if America’s most talented chefs, scientists, and business leaders worked together to develop business-friendly solutions to the obesity and healthcare crises? This question and others concerning the future of food will be answered at the Menus of Change leadership initiative in Boston in June. Developed by the CIA and Harvard School of Public Health, the conference will bring together the people who influence the food choices of millions of Americans each day—from the food, science, business, and policy-making worlds.  

Among the speakers at this ground-breaking and innovative summit will be Sam Kass, senior policy advisor for healthy food initiatives at the White House, and Barton Seaver ’01, director of the Healthy and Sustainable Food Program at the Harvard University Center for Health and the Global Environment.  Learn more >
