People's Food Justice Summit at TBD

December 8, 2012 from 10am to 7pm

Healthy food at airports?

It used to be you could only get a slice of pizza or a cheeseburger while waiting to board your flight. So it's great to hear that airports are increasingly offering healthy food options. These high-fiber, low-fat foods are great for weary travelers in order to rev up their energy and aid in digestion. And while its great that 83% of restaurants in the busiest airports attest to having a healthy option on their menus, this may still be only one option among many unhealthy ones. …See More

Heat Guidelines for School Sports

It's interesting to see what high school sports teams are doing to adapt to rising temperatures: http://www.npr.org/2012/08/28/160114705/heat-guidelines-help-keep-young-athletes-cool. I'm glad to see that schools are taking heat-related health problems seriously. Adaptation needs to have as much of our focus as mitigation, and public health can help provide a critical lens.See More
