CANCELLED - UNC NRI Appetite for Life Seminar Series: Whole Foods and Nutrient Synergy

Appetite for Life Academy

This event has been cancelled due to inclement weather conditions. Please check back soon as we will update once this event has been rescheduled.

Join the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Nutrition Research Institute (UNC NRI) at Restaurant Forty Six for Appetite for Life, featuring Carol Cheatham, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience at the NRI.  

Many explanations can be found as to why certain foods are always eaten together; some actually make sense. How about whole foods? Why are certain nutrients always found together in whole foods? Dr. Cheatham will present the available evidence surrounding the superiority of eating whole foods to support brain development and function. After a discussion of ancient and current food practices, she will dig deeper into the idea that nutrients appear together in nature because they support each other in their functional properties. As an example, she will present some of her work showing that nutrients in human milk work together in support of infant recognition memory. Come learn about your food and how you can best use it to fuel your brain!

Appetite for Life is a series of community programs that bring the latest scientific research down to earth in educational and interactive lectures, demonstrations and events. Our speakers, experts in their fields, present programs to help you understand what targeted nutrition is and how we are using advanced methods of research to investigate it for your improved healthcare.
