Description: One of the best, and most affordable methods of living a happier, healthier life is to simply eat right. Consuming a balanced selection of food is a practical and feasible method for controlling weight, improving mood, and reducing the risk of many dangerous chronic diseases. Join UC San Diego's Director of Nutrition, Vicky Newman, RD, MS, in learning about maximizing your physical and mental health through healthful eating.

For more than thirty-five years, Vicky Newman has been involved in nutrition and behavior change research at UC San Diego, with a focus on wellness and disease prevention. Ms. Newman manages the Healthy Eating and Living Program team of lifestyle counselors and assessors. During the past 16 years, the team she leads has counseled nearly three thousand people in clinical trials, evaluating the impact of lifestyle change (especially diet and physical activity) on risk and progression of cancer. Ms. Newman also developed the cooking class curriculum and recipes that taught several times each month at the Moores Cancer Center.

This public lecture shall be taking place on August 27, 2014, 5:30 pm at the Garren Auditorium, located inside the Biomedical Sciences Building of UC San Diego. Admission is free.
