Official launch of Foodplus and Public Event

The Foodplus Panel

The Foodplus Panel

On Wednesday the 8th December on the eve of the  launch of FOODplus Research Centre, a public event was held at the Elder Hall. A panel of nutrition experts was convened to discuss Food for Health and the myths surrounding this topic. This was a well attended event and provoked a lively discussion. The recording is now available here for those who missed this event or would like to hear it again.

We are very pleased to announce that on Thursday the 9th of December, Foodplus was officially launched in the Mortlock Chamber of the State Library by the Hon. Michael O’Brien, Minister for Agriculture, Food and Fisheries and the Hon. John Hill, Minister for Health. Also  speaking at this event were Mr Frank Kite, chair of Women’s and Children’s Health Research Institute council, Professor Roger Leigh, director of Waite Research Institute and Head of School of Agriculture Food and Wine, Richard Russell AM, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research Operations) University of Adelaide and Professor Robert Gibson, director of FOODplus Research Centre.
