A Greater Vision – The Business of Healthy Eating
A Greater Vision is an annual education event providing a series of public forum featuring speakers and panel discussions from community members, academic researchers, elected officials, public agencies, and agricultural representatives.
Wed. October 22, 2014 – 2:00pm – 4:30pm
California State University Monterey Bay (CSUMB) – University Center Ballroom
The series addresses agricultural issues important to agriculture and the larger community, and is designed for the general public. Central Coast agriculture grows fruits and vegetables recommended for a healthy diet. Currently the agriculture industry and public health are both working together to protect the environment and prevent diseases like diabetes. A public-private partnership, uneasy at times, is emerging to address this challenge.
In this series, we will examine how the system of production agriculture and the promotion of public health can work together to provide value added produce at an affordable price, while protecting farm workers and the environment. In three annual sessions, experts will examine this challenge to and how it can be addressed through public policy, marketing programs designed to promote the public good, and ne production technologies.
There is no charge to attend.
