Come and join us for a discussion on the hot topic of food deserts. We will discuss the fact that many people in North Carolina lack ready access to a full service grocery store and how our often toxic food environment contributes to obesity, heart disease, and diabetes.

You will learn about the current research pertaining to food deserts, local solutions being put in place here in North Carolina, and the political discussion going on in Raleigh.

Our panel of speakers will include:

- Jennifer Cantwell Wood, MPH, RD, LDN, dietitian at Family Nutrition of the Triad
- Dr. Terrence Thomas, professor in the Department of Agribusiness, Applied Economics and Agriscience at NC A&T
- Jon Barber, County Commissioner in Rowan County and co-owner of My Farm Fresh MarketPlace and Mobile Farm Fresh
