Posted on Friday, January 30, 2015

Please join us on February 25th for a member-guest program on the topic of mitigating disease processes through a diet focused on the health-promoting properties of whole foods.  Dr. Britt Burton Freeman, Director of the Center for Nutrition Research at the National Institute for Food Safety and Health and Associate Professor of Food Science and Nutrition at the Illinois Institute of Technology, will discuss the protective effects on inflammatory and oxidative stress responses of certain dietary constituents.  She will explain how these foods can (potentially) mitigate the negative effects of modern lifestyle and western eating habits. 

The program will be held in the Executive Conference Room of the IIT Tower, located at the northwest corner of 35th and South State Streets on the campus of the Illinois Institute of Technology.  Reserved parking is available in public lot D5, just across State Street from the Tower.  There is no additional cost for reserved parking but spaces are limited and reserved parking must be arranged for prior to the date of the event.  Please contact Pat Anderson ( or fill in the appropriate box on the registration form to reserve a parking space.

Coffee and tea will be available beginning at 10:30am; the program will begin at 11:00am and lunch will be served at noon. The cost is $25.
