“The Diabesity Epidemic” with Leika Suzumura

As cultures around the world undergo dietary acculturation, a nutrition transition is occurring, accompanied by a rapid increase in the rates of obesity and diabetes. The good news is that we have the opportunity with every meal to literally EAT our way towards health. Come learn simple choices you can make to nurture/foster your wellbeing.

Leika Suzumura, R.D., has been cooking and studying nutrition since the age of 13. She received her undergraduate degree in nutrition at Bastyr University, and is passionate about food justice and the pursuit of making quality foods accessible to all people. Her strategy is founded on community networks and empowering people with the knowledge and skills necessary to take charge of their health for the greatest quality of life.
