This event will be streamed online as part of our P&P Live! Series. 

Dr. David Kessler, a pediatrician, and former commissioner of the US Food and Drug Administration is one of the country's foremost experts on health and has recently been appointed to Joe Biden's "Public Health Advisory Committee", offering daily advisories to Biden on the evolving COVID-19 pandemic. In his new book, FAST CARBS, SLOW CARBS he gives a detailed look at how refined grains such as wheat, corn, and rice became the foundation of our diets; explains the negative physical effects of these fast carbs, especially when combined with saturated fats; offers clear guidelines for discerning what it is we’re really eating; and provides proven ways to cut fast carbs and fats, increase exercise, and improve overall health. In this talk he will look at best practices to stay healthy and informed in these difficult and stressful times, and take questions about both his vital current work with COVID-19 and groundbreaking past research.
