Decoding food labels is the topic of this month’s Science Café—a speaker series at St. Ann Center for Intergenerational Care-Bucyrus Campus, 2450 W. North Ave. “Understanding Food & Nutrition Labels: The Path to Healthy Food Choices and Weight Loss” is set for Tuesday, Oct. 31, 5:30 – 6:30 p.m., and is sponsored by the Medical College of Wisconsin’s Clinical & Translational Science Institute.
Leading the discussion will be Andrea Moosreiner, a registered dietician with a graduate degree in public health who manages the Medical College’s Bio-Nutrition Program. Her presentation will explore what food label terms mean—from all-natural to low-fat to organic. She’ll also explain how understanding nutrition labels can aid healthy weight loss and maintenance strategies.
The program is part of a free monthly series, held the last Tuesday of each month exploring a variety of health topics. Health professionals can get Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit for attending, but anyone can attend. Light refreshments will be served.
