"An Assessment of the Newfoundland Labrador School Food Environment" By Emily Doyle

WHEN: October 16, 2019, 7 pm @ MUN Botanical Garden

Presenting research concerning the school food environment and the important role food plays in building healthy communities.

Emily is currently completing her PhD in Community Health and Humanities at MUN on the subject of the school food environment. She was drawn to this topic as a mother, an educator and someone who is passionate about the possibilities of a more sustainable food system in the province of NL. Emily's approach to the research topic is flavoured by her background in interdisciplinary humanities. Her research is qualitative and seeks to find some workable solutions in what is the complex system of school food.

Join us at the Garden for 'Berries and the Brain: Potential protective effects of Newfoundland and Labrador berries'.

MUN Pharmacologist and Neuroscientist Dr. John Weber will be sharing the latest results of his research that has demonstrated the potential of berries to protect the brain from aging, inflammation and neurodegenerative disorders.

WHEN: September 18th, 2019, 7 pm @ MUN Botanical Garden

This lecture is free to the public and no registration is required.

In the first of our Nature ‘Talks’ Series, Dr. Teresa Connors will give a talk on her most recent practice-based creative research. As the 2017–2019 International Institute for Critical Studies Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at MUN Music, Connor created a series of audiovisual works that explored the environment of Eastern Coast Newfoundland. The talk will explore this body of creative research while discussing some of the thinking-in-the-making processes that have occurred.
