It’s going to be a rather busy semester.
First and foremost, I’m proud to say that the Farm To Fork website will be officially launching this fall. Of course, a launch wouldn’t quite be a launch if it didn’t include a party. At this point we’re still organizing everything, but I can say that the event is scheduled for October 3. I can’t wait.
Before that, on September 22nd, I will be joining several members of the Farm To Fork team at the Taste Real Field Dinner. The event, featuring Chef Lynn Crawford, celebrates local food and culinary talent while simultaneously raising funds for food related projects in Guelph. This year, the Farm To Fork team is thrilled to be one of the named recipients of funds raised by the event. If you’re interested in going, click here.
Following the Field Dinner, I’ll be chatting with the fine folks of the Knowledge Translation and Transfer Communities of Practice. Specifically, I’ll be presenting How Community Engagement in a 3rd Year Computer Science Class Addressed Food Insecurity. The talk is scheduled for September 27th.
Later in the semester (November 15), I’ll be heading to Western University to chat with the students in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics. That talk, titled Mapping the Future to Improve Health and Health Policy in the Here and Now will explore the use of scenario analyses in modern population health assessment and policy making.
There’s also a third potential talk – but I’m waiting to confirm dates and such before announcing that one. Regardless, it’s going to be a busy, albeit fun, semester.
