      Description:
      Exhibition will begin with the neuroscience of appetite, genetics of obesity, and how food and energy are stored in the body. It will examine behavioral choice in nutrition and exercise as well as the influence of social, environmental, and cultural settings. Visitors can investigate our origins as hunter-gatherers; explore societal pressures such as the progressive growth of portion sizes; tackle media influences on food preferences; and consider serious health consequences that have increased the burden of chronic diseases, including diabetes and heart disease. The exhibit will conclude with a challenge for visitors to reflect on their role in personal and community health and the sustainability of our food system. On view Feb. 11-Dec. 2.
