Special Talk with T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D. December 8, 20107:00pm at Buchan Hall, Eliot Center, 1226 SW Salmon Street, Portland, OR 97205
T Colin Campbell was raised on a dairy farm, milking cows. He went on to earn a Ph.D. in animal nutrition from Cornell University, conducting thesis research on increasing production of protein in cattle. However, observations he later made while working on a nutrition improvement project in the Philippines, coupled with his research results in the lab, led him to question his prior assumptions of the value of animal protein, as that research linked the consumption of animal products to a number of chronic diseases in humans.
Dr. Campbell is now Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry, Cornell University; Project Director of the China-Oxford-Cornell Diet and Health Project; and author of more than 300 research papers and recipient of more than 70 grant-years of peer-reviewed research funding. He has served on several grant review committees and actively participated in the development of national and international nutrition policy. He is an internationally known lecturer and co-author of The China Study. His work, along with the work of Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn Jr., is featured strongly in the new powerful movie Forks Over Knives. Come hear a fascinating talk.
