On Tuesday, November 8th, Dr. Robert Post visited Sargent College to present the “USDA’s New MyPlate Initiative: Putting the Dietary Guidelines into Action” for the 13th Annual Dudley Allen Sargent Lecture. As Deputy Director of the USDA’s Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion (CNPP), Post oversees the MyPlate Initiative‘s design, website development and communications campaign.
Dr. Post described MyPlate’s collaboration with First Lady Michelle Obama: “It really brings home the issue of improving our healthy choices, but because of the affiliation with Let’s Move!, it also shows that we’re not only talking about healthy choices. We’re really also talking about balancing those food choices with physical activity.”
On Wednesday, October 26 at 8:00 pm, the Rubin-Frankel Gallery and the College of Fine Arts present a musical performance, PARALLELS, by the Arneis Quartet. The project, inspired by the art exhibition Faces of Revival: Postwar Russia in the Art of Felix Lembersky (1913-1970), “explores the universal themes of survival, resilience, and the pursuit of artistic freedom under political oppression.”
The Arneis Quartet comprises four Boston University School of Music alumni, and will feature Dmitri Shostakovich String Quartet No. 8 and Benjamin Britten String Quartet No. 2. The performance will be preceded by a talk by Assistant Professor of Theory, Dr. Ludmilla Leibman, and a film presentation.
PARALLELS takes place on Wednesday, October 26 from 8:00 to 9:30 pm at the Rubin-Frankel Gallery, located at the Florence and Chafetz Hillel House at 213 Bay State Road. For more information, visit the event listing on the Boston University Hillel website or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
