More than 250 health professionals are signed up for a web seminar that will provide an opportunity to hear about how food is produced by U.S. growers.
The seminar, called “Ask a Farmer/Rancher: A Food Dialogue” is sponsored by the Produce for Better Health Foundation. The event aims to give participants deeper knowledge about where food comes from and how it is grown, according to a news release from the Hockessin, Del.-based group.
Most of the participants signed up for the web seminar, scheduled for 2 p.m. Eastern on Oct. 23, are health professionals and health educators, said Kristen Stevens, spokeswoman for PBH. The seminar will feature about 45 minutes of presentations and 15 minutes for questions, according to the release.
Additional objectives of the event include to dispel commonly believed myths about farming and ranching and to learn about new resources for balanced information about how food is grown/raised through the U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance, according to the release.
Speakers at the web seminar include Paul Wenger, of Wenger Farms, Modesto, Calif., Rodger Wasson, Wasson & Associates and representative of the U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance and Elizabeth Pivonka, president and chief executive officer of PBH.
