Bill Kurtis - Death By Food Presentation - March 16

(Continuing education) Permanent link

Bill Kurtis - "Death By Food" presentation on Monday, March 16, 2015 at ECC


Award-winning investigative journalist Bill Kurtis will expose what is behind today's myriad of rising health problems. In his multimedia lecture Death By Food, Kurtis will investigate the means, motive and opportunity behind why American food is over-processed, over-sugared, over-salted, and contains too much fat. Mr. Kurtis will offer a means of optimal nutrition as a solution to the nutrient depleted foods we often find on tables of American consumers.  Kurtis will argue that natural, minimally processed, sustainably raised food stuffs hold the key to our skyrocketing obesity and diabetes rates, and how consumers can make more informed food choices for better health.

An acclaimed documentary host and producer, network news anchor, multimedia production company president, author, and grass-fed-cattle rancher, Bill Kurtis has been in broadcasting over 40 years. With a body of work ranging from providing the satirical narration for Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy to writing his book, The Death Penalty on Trial: Crisis in American Justice, Kurtis is the recipient of numerous awards including numerous Emmys, CableACE Awards, and the Thurgood Marshall Award. A meet-and-greet reception will immediately follow his talk. The ECC Bookstore will sell copies of Mr. Kurtis' The Prairie Table Cookbook during the reception. Education Tickets are $25.00 each per online registration.  Presentation is from 7:00 to 9:00 pm at Elgin Community College, Seigle Auditorium, Building E.
