Tomorrow's Table: Organic Farming, Genetics and the Future of Food

Pamela Ronald

Prof. Ronald will describe the latest research and applications of genetic engineering in the US and around the world. Her talk will provide accurate information about organic farming, genetic engineering, and their potential impacts on human health and the environment. It will be of interest to consumers and dieticians who want to make healthy food choices and support ecologically responsible farming practices.

-- Be familiar with the types of genetically engineered crops planted by farmers and why they make these choices
-- Learn what major scientific organizations conclude about the safety of consuming foods developed through genetic engineering
-- Recognize that “GMO” crops are each distinct and must be evaluated on a case-by-case basis
