Sign up for the Webinar on “Law as a Social Determinant:  Black Health, Food Insecurity and the Law” which is scheduled for Thurs-7/14 from 2 pm to 4 pm. 

African Americans experience food insecurity at a higher rate than Whites. Food insecurity means having inadequate access to nutritious things to eat. For Americans that can be both not getting enough food; and not getting the right food. Ironically, high-calorie food is cheap and plentiful in poor urban communities (due to the low cost of corporate food production heavily subsidized by tax dollars), while low-calorie, nutrient-rich food is harder to come by. This leads to a counterintuitive situation in which poverty tends to foster obesity rather than starvation.  This webinar is hosted by Vernellia R. Randall, Professor of Law at the University of Dayton School of Law.
