Our local NPR station hosts "The Academic Minute," a segment that features professors from around the world, delving into a variety of topics and keeping us abreast of what's new and exciting in the Academe. The subject on December 19, 2011 was timely.
"Meetings, Snacking, and Obesity," presented Carly Pacanowski, addresses how the groaning board served at almost every meeting or social gathering we attend can have unintended health consequences. Her academic minute is valuable and lucid.
Ms. Pacanowski is a Cornell Ph.D. candidate in the Division of Nutritional Sciences and is interested in obesity, body weight regulation, and quality of life.
