TEDxHarvardLaw will focus on food policy and public health, with a specific focus on legal and policy approaches to increasing the supply and demand of healthy foods.
The conference will be divided into three sessions. The sessions will try to answer the following questions:
Session 1: HEALTH: How do modern dietary patterns lead to disease?/What should we eat?
Session 2: SUPPLY: How can we change supply?
Session 3: DEMAND: How can we change demand?
The first session will be comprised of researchers whose work focuses on nutrition. It is designed to expose members of the legal community to cutting edge issues in nutrition and to generate dialogue between policymakers and researchers studying the relationship between food and disease. The latter two sessions will focus on legal and policy solutions to the problems highlighted in the first session and will include lawyers, policymakers, and academics specializing in food law or food policy.
