This June is nutrition’s 15 minutes of fame on the world stage. To kick off USAID’s Nutrition Week, join ONE, 1,000 Days and GAIN’s Future Fortified campaign on Monday, June 3rd at 12:15pm EST on ONE’s Google+ page for an up-close-and-personal conversation with USAID Administrator Rajiv Shah. Dr. Shah will be joined by Tjada McKenna, Deputy Coordinator for Development at Feed the Future, Lucy Sullivan, Executive Director of 1,000 Days, and Candice Kumai, chef, food writer, Iron Chef Judge and nutrition champion for Future Fortified, to address nutrition-relation questions like:
- How does nutrition play into poverty alleviation?
- How can I, as an average citizen, take action and be heard?
- What strides have been made in global nutrition?
- How can we scale up global nutrition efforts?
