The Winona State University CLASP Series will present “Food & Mood,” from 7-8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 10, in Gildemeister Hall, room 155.

Janet Macon, instructor of health, exercise & rehabilitative sciences (HERS) and dietician, will present the relationship between the foods we choose and the way we feel.

Macon will serve a sampling of the brain chemistry involved in hunger/satiety signaling, cravings and control in our daily food patterns. She will discuss how the body responds to a healthy balanced diet, and the symptoms it experiences otherwise. Learn how to assemble the building blocks of a mood-balancing diet.

Macon holds a Master of Science in Nutrition, and is a Registered and Licensed Dietitian.

The Consortium for Liberal Arts and Science Promotion (CLASP) is intended to promote interdisciplinary discussion and exchange via presentations for students, faculty and the community. The CLASP Series was created to bring the WSU community and the greater Winona community together around a common theme. The 2012-13 University Theme is Well-Connected.

This event is free and open to the public.
