Understanding GMOs: An Evening with Dr. Don Huber
Slow Food Indy is proud to offer this special event based on feedback we received from the e-mail survey we conducted back in January. You asked for a program on GMOs, and we have delivered!
About the Event
Dr. Don Huber will spend 45-minutes introducing GMOs – What are they? How did they end up in our food? How do they affect our health? After his presentation, we will open the floor to your questions to create an interactive dialogue focused on what you need to know.
Who Should Attend
This community conversation is intended for those who have heard about GMOs and need to learn more. So, if you are already an expert and a Slow Food advocate please consider helping us spread the word by giving your seat to someone who needs to learn more.
