Health

Healthful Eating

digital & in-person

Heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity, certain cancers, and other diseases are heavily influenced by diet and lifestyle. Students learn about the connections between the Western Diet and health, and discuss ways that informed dietary choices can help prevent or relieve diseases. We also explore how modern farming and agricultural practices contribute to present-day public health concerns. The latest meat and plant-based food science technologies are also discussed.

The full-length "Healthful Eating" video presentation is 40 minutes long. The in-person presentation has 90, 70, and 45-minute options. Click the button below to request this presentation.

Modern Animal Agriculture

in-person only

Animal agriculture has changed drastically over the last century, as the majority of livestock in Canada are raised in intensive confinement facilities, often called “ILOs” - or intensive livestock operations. Students learn about the conditions and realities for both workers and animals in these settings. The latest meat and plant-based food science technologies are also discussed.

Food Technology

Cell-Based and Plant-Based Technologies

digital & in-person

Students discover how food science innovations have the potential to revolutionize modern food production and consumption systems, as well as address health, sustainability and ethical concerns. Participants explore plant-based meats, cultivated (cell-based) meats, and "animal-free" dairy and egg technologies, taking an in-depth look at the science behind their production, as well as the benefits, with a vision for a more sustainable, healthy and compassionate food system.

The full-length “Cell-Based and Plant-Based Technologies” video presentation is 28 minutes long. The full-length in-person presentation is offered at 45 minutes. Click the button below to request this presentation.
