Global Health Lecture Series

Wednesday, November 6, 2013 - 12:00 PM to 11:59 PM

Location: ACB 120

The Office of Global Health (OGH) invites you to attend an ongoing lecture series on issues related to global health and building healthy communities. This week's lecture is "Breedlove: Innovative Humanitarian Relief," at noon CST Nov. 6 in ACB 120.

Hope Floeck, director of government programs for Breedlove Foods Inc., will share her personal stories and experiences. Everyone is invited to attend. Free lunch will be provided to the first 40 attendees.

Breedlove Foods Inc. is a nonprofit organization committed to alleviating hunger across the globe. Their vision is to be a leader in international humanitarian hunger relief, providing hope to the impoverished through growth and innovation.

The crisis of hunger, malnutrition, and poverty affects more than 1 billion people, with more than 950 million lacking adequate nutrition to maintain health. According to statistics, more than 25,000 people die each day from hunger. More than half of all child deaths worldwide are caused by malnutrition. Poor nutrition makes a person much more likely to contract disease and/or suffer from illness. It also reduces the effectiveness of medication.

Breedlove Dehydrated Foods is committed to feeding the hungry of the world by building relationships with commodity producers, distributors, warehouses, transporters and processors; processing nutritious food of consistent quality; and developing partnerships with other organizations.

This presentation will not be linked to the additional TTUHSC campuses; however, it will be recorded for future viewing on the OGH website.
