jodiThis month Jodi Engleson became the first Director of Scientific Affairs for the Grains for Health Foundation. The Foundation aims to redesign the food supply by facilitating the development, delivery and consumption of grain-based foods that promote a balanced body weight, reduce chronic disease and curb health care costs. Wow, this is in my eyes a highly visionary and relevant mission.

gfhf_logoLen Marquart is behind this. He is a very active researcher on Whole Grains at the University of Minnesota. He serves as President of the new Foundation. I meet Len and Jodi in June, and I’m sure they will make important contributions and I look forward to interacting with them and the Grains for Health Foundation

You can find their mission here.
