The presentation is free and open to the public. Tele-medicine connections may be available in local communities to view the presentation; please check http://www.msuextension.org/nutrition/ for locations.
Nelson is the founder of the StrongWomen Initiative, and her presentation will address issues of increasingly overweight and obese Americans. The tour aims to improve nutrition and physical activity across the nation by mobilizing a grass roots social network movement to improve the food and physical activity environment within communities. Nelson, who holds a doctorate in philosophy, will also have limited copies of her new book "Social Network Diet: Change Yourself, Change the World," available at the presentation.
Nelson is a professor of nutrition at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, and founder and director of the John Hancock Research Center on Physical Activity, Nutrition, and Obesity Prevention at Tufts University. First Lady Michelle Obama highlighted the center's work at the "Let's Move" launch as best practices for community change.
