Food for Thought: A Conversation With Michael Pollan
The George Washington Leadership Lecture Presents Food for Thought: A Conversation With Michael Pollan
George Washington and author Michael Pollan both have had a profound and enduring influence on humanity’s relationship with food. Washington’s research into how to modernize farming led to new approaches to crop rotation and soil management that remain relevant today. Meanwhile, Pollan’s thoroughly researched books have unearthed insights into how our food is produced and how it shapes our lives.
Please join Pollan in a conversation with USC Price Professor David Sloane as they explore the complex and evolving nature of how to feed a growing population without outstripping nature’s ability to provide. USC Price Dean and distinguished professor of public policy, pharmacy, and economics, Dana Goldman, and President and Chief Executive Officer of George Washington’s Mount Vernon, Douglas Bradburn, will provide opening remarks.
This event is brought to you by the USC Sol Price School of Public Policy and the George Washington Presidential Library at Mount Vernon.
Established through a generous gift by Maribeth Borthwick ’73, who also serves as the Vice Regent for California of the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association, this lecture series explores the Father of our Country’s lifelong accomplishments, providing a better understanding of him as a person, as well as his remarkable leadership, professional achievements, and lasting legacy.
