Thanks to all who joined us for our second COAST seminar of the 2012-2013 season, "Optimal Diets for Longevity: The Science, Not the Hype" on November 16th, 2012. Please check back soon for information on our next seminar.
Our topic was local soda policy. Dr. Jeff Ritterman, a Richmond City Councilmember,discussed his city's experience in trying to pass one of the nation's first soda taxes in the November election. Following Dr. Ritterman's talk, we featured a panel of speakers who provided clinical, community, and policy perspectives regarding the implications of soda policy.
