Professor Diane Finegood: Working with the food industry
Professor Diane Finegood, President and CEO of the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research, Canada, delivered the keynote address at the Prevention Centre’s Investigators Forum in October 2014.
Professor Finegood urged public health to work with the food industry if it wanted any hope of solving the complex and growing epidemic of obesity.
“I don’t believe we can change the food supply without working with the people who are responsible for the food supply. At the very least, we need to talk to each other and understand how each other works and not make assumptions,” Professor Finegood said.
