North Carolina State University professor Frank Edens will discuss “sustainability of human health” at Transylvania on Thursday, March 27, at 7:30 p.m.

LEXINGTON, Ky.—Frank Edens, professor of poultry science at North Carolina State University, will give a lecture on the sustainability of human health Thursday, March 27, at 7:30 p.m. in Haggin Auditorium. The lecture, which is free and open to the public, is the second in this year’s Alltech Lecture Series at Transylvania.

At no time in history has our food chain had a more important role in influencing health. Our agricultural practices, the care and management of food producing animals and our food processing techniques all influence the value of our foods and ultimately our health and quality of life. Edens’ lecture will raise awareness of the relationship between human health and quality of the food chain and will describe some facts in the food chain that contribute to our view of health and the quality of life.

Edens will join Transylvania professors Sharon Brown, exercise science, and Kathleen Jagger, biology, and University of Kentucky professor emeritus James Drummond, oral pathology, for a panel discussion and question and answer session following the lecture.
