Oct 23, 2015

T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D., professor emeritus of nutritional biochemistry at Cornell University and co-author of “The China Study,” will discuss his research on health and nutrition at The University of Scranton on Wednesday, Nov. 11. The lecture, which begins at 7 p.m. in the McIlhenny Ballroom of the DeNaples Center, is open to the public free of charge. Doors open at 6 p.m.

As one of the founders of Forks over Knives, Pure Plant Nation and co-author of the best-selling book “The China Study,” Dr. Campbell has been influential in shaping nutrition and health in the world health community. Much of his research focuses on how diet can improve health and reduce the chances for life-threatening diseases, such as cardiovascular disease and cancer. He has used his book to promote how and why the world should eat less meat and dairy and instead consume a plant-based diet. His research has received worldwide attention with documentaries currently being shown in theaters across the United States and on Netflix.

The lecture is sponsored by the University’s Center for Health Education and Wellness, the Exercise Science Club and the Panuska College of Professional Studies. The event is part of the Panuska College of Professional Studies 2015-2016 celebration of the college and dedication of Leahy Hall and is themed “Embracing the Call to Care.”
