Laurel, MD (Vocus) October 15, 2010
Tai Sophia Institute will host Live Nourished: The Vital Roles of Food in Health and Wellness on Saturday, November 6 from 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. The conference will feature five of the nation’s top thought leaders on holistic and whole foods nutrition: Annemarie Colbin, Ph.D. (keynote speaker), Charles Eisenstein, Sally Fallon Morell, Paul Pitchford, and Kathie Swift.
“The Live Nourished nutrition conference kicks off the curriculum design for Tai Sophia’s upcoming graduate degree in holistic nutrition,” said Judi Broida, Ph.D., Tai Sophia Institute Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs. “Like the conference, this cutting-edge graduate nutrition program will focus on the vital and interrelated – yet all-too-often unacknowledged and undervalued – physical, medicinal, therapeutic, spiritual, emotional, and social qualities of food.” The new program is scheduled to begin in fall 2011 pending approval by the Maryland Higher Education Commission.
