THE INTERSECTION OF FOOD, DIET AND HEALTHCARE
On the menu for the next event in the Indiana Life Sciences Collaboration Conference Series is a day of discussion, “The Intersection of Food, Diet and Healthcare.” Experts in nutrition, agribusiness, medicine and healthcare will discuss the role of the food chain in Indiana’s life sciences industry.
The conference, organized by the Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business and its Center for the Business of Life Sciences, will take place May 10 at One America Tower in Indianapolis.
As our understanding of food and its effects on and interaction with the body increase at the molecular level, the opportunities to put it to use for population health are significant. As well, an appreciation of the role of social determinants in health has increased over the last several years. Besides helping feed the world’s growing population and affecting the social determinants of health, the potential of gene-edited crops to act as treatments for a variety of conditions could meaningfully reduce future healthcare costs. How these products are labeled, marketed and sold is a part of the equation as well. Stakeholders and observers will share their thoughts and opinions on the benefits and concerns regarding this part of the life sciences industry. Learn more and register here.
