September 17, 2018, 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM @ Bemis Hall
Come to Bemis Hall on Monday, September 17, at 12:30 to hear Judith Foster discuss “How Our Bodies Use Food As a Fuel To Extract Energy And Maintain Weight. What Can Go Wrong?” One of the major health concerns in modern, industrialized nations is the alarming increase in both average body weights and obesity, especially among children. In order to understand how an increase in body weight relates to dietary intake and life style, this lecture will review the molecular basics of how energy is stored in food and how it is transformed in our bodies to sustain our basal metabolic rate, body temperature and physical activity. Dr. Foster will discuss the classes of molecules that comprise different food types and their unique effects on metabolic pathways despite having similar caloric amounts. The COA provides beverages and dessert. The lectures last about an hour, including a question and answer period. Participants are welcome to stay after the program to continue their discussion.
