Everybody eats. Food nourishes the body, tempts the imagination, and strengthens communities. On the other hand, food can be a weapon and an obstacle as seen in religion, in advertising, and in the intricacies of gender. In this thought provoking presentation, Renee Phillips explores the mixed messages surrounding food and will encourage and provoke you to rethink your relationships with food, food production, and consumption. Don’t miss it – and Bon Appetit!

Whose Life is it Anyway?

Health care ethics – particularly quality of life issues, the right to life, and the right to die – effect everyone, young and old, whether healthy or disabled. About 22 percent of the population in Florida is already over 60 and an additional 20-some percent will care for patients diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease – at a rate of about 1 per minute! In this dynamic lecture, which brings to light the ethics and philosophy behind the famous court cases that grapple with the concept of human rights as technologies surpass our understanding of their impact on society, you will learn about current Florida statutes on advance directives and other end of life issues.
