The Medical History Interest Group invites you to attend "The Health Principles Practiced at John Harvey Kellogg’s Battle Creek Sanitarium" presented by Roman Pawlak, PhD, RD, Associate Professor in the Department of Nutrition Science, CAHS.
Many people associate his name with the cornflakes he developed. But John Harvey Kellogg was much more than a cereal maker. He crammed the accomplishments of many people into one lifetime. He was a physician, surgeon, dietitian, inventor, educator, administrator, religious leader, public speaker, and author of books, articles, and tracts that profoundly changed personal habits of many Americans and our understanding of preventive medicine, health, treatments of diseases, hygiene, sex education, and diet. In fact, John Harvey Kellogg still influences the health and dietary habits of many all around the world through the many products, such as breakfast cereal and peanut butter, which he developed.
Roman Pawlak is an Associate Professor of Nutrition in the College of Allied Health Sciences. He has been at ECU for 15 years and has written 8 books. His specializations are vitamin B12 and vegetarianism. He has visited over 60 countries, is a Bible student, and an avid tennis player.
This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided.
The lecture will also feature a pop-up display.
