Expert on child nutrition speaks on healthy eating

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - A Baylor University professor of pediatrics and expert on child nutrition is scheduled to speak at the University of South Carolina on improving kids' health and wellbeing.

The school says Dr. Tom Baranowski is set to lecture on Friday as part of an Arnold School of Public Health gathering on improving the health of children and adults.

The symposium runs from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center.

It is titled, "Healthy Eating in Context: Communicating for Change and Sustainability."

Stensland says the goal of the meeting is bringing diverse communities together to bolster nutrition and physical activity of children and adults, and use technology toward that goal.
