    Do teens consume too much unhealthy food? What is considered unhealthy? Do our schools and community promote nutritional choices?

    Dr. Eric Rimm will discuss teen nutrition and key findings of a recent survey of Brookline High teen soda and purchased drink consumption. Dr. Rimm is a Professor of Epidemiology and Nutrition and the Director of the Program in Cardiovascular Epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health and also a Professor of Medicine at the Harvard Medical School. His research includes effective interventions for schoolchildren, adults and the food insecure. He was awarded the 2012 American Society for Nutrition General Mills Institute of Health and Nutrition Innovation Award.

    The Brookline High School Food Justice Committee works to educate our community and support the Brookline Food Pantry, and aims to build a Food and Sustainability Program at Brookline High School.
