Event Details
The discovery of many of the vitamins reads like a murder mystery, complete with multiple suspects, red herrings, twists and turns leading to dead ends and key clues, and dogged detectives who sometimes had to put their own lives in jeopardy to uncover the truth. Hear the fascinating stories of how cultural and agricultural factors conspired to create single nutrient deficiencies that killed by the thousands around the world, and what it took for scientists to identify the culprits, who weren’t even at the scene of the crime! Sarah Ash–AB, Biology, Harvard University; MS and PhD, Nutrition, Tufts University– is a professor emerita in the Department of Food, Bioprocessing, and Nutrition Sciences at NC State. She is also a recipient of the UNC System Board of Governors Award for Excellence in Teaching, the NC State Alumni Distinguished Professor Award, and the USDA Food and Agriculture Sciences Excellence in Teaching Award, among others. The virtual event will take place on Saturday, October 24 from 9-11:30AM, Central Time Zone.
