Making and IMPACT. Science for the Real World.

Join CTSI's IMPACT and IHPS for a discussion with Marion Nestle about her new memoir, Slow Cooked.

Marion Nestle will reflect on her late-in-life career as a world-renowned food politics expert, public health advocate, and a founder of the field of food studies after facing decades of low expectations.

She will highlight her upcoming memoir, Slow Cooked, that tells her personal story, including her astonishing rise from bench scientist to the pinnacles of academia, while overcoming the barriers and biases facing women of her generation and finding her life’s purpose after age fifty.

Slow Cooked will be available for purchase during the reception from 4:45-5:30pm.

The event will also include reflections on the status of women at UCSF by Catherine Reinis Lucey, MD, MAACP, Executive Vice Dean and Vice Dean for Education, and Professor of Medicine in the UCSF School of Medicine.
