Dr. Kelly Brownell, Director of the Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity at Yale University, Connecticut, and a renowned expert on obesity and nutrition will speak at the Pan American Health Organization on the topic:

Are Food Industry's self-regulatory approaches working?

Dr. Brownell recently asserted that Food companies and fast food restaurants are in an all-out press to gain the trust of the public and government officials, and to fight off both bad publicity and the threat of government regulation. The industry is vulnerable because it has created, marketed, and sold foods that damage public health and contribute to rising health care costs.
