Health, personal & global
In Feburary I released:
My book, Food Sobriety (click to go to the Amazon page)
And my documentary short, A Faustian Bargain (click to go to the youtube page).
The film is in dual language format and the book, while currently only available in English, will have a Spanish version and dual language format out this Spring. An e-book is also in progress. Both the book and film were inspired by my years in Nicaragua, including my recent stint as a Fulbright Scholar. Food Sobriety, while being a practical weight loss guide, also touches upon themes of social justice and the role of diet in our changing world. A Faustian Bargain looks at the rapidly growing obesity epidemic in Nicaragua through the lens of local residents and health care practitioners.
I will be traveling to universities, healthcare facilities, and conferences to raise awareness about global obesity via:
- A screening and discussion of A Faustian Bargain
- A short lecture on obesity in the developing world
- A collection of Nicaraguan folk art
I AM SEEKING OPPORTUNITIES TO SPEAK. If you are interested in having me come and present to your institution, event, or group please contact me at dfenyvesi [at] hotmail [dot] com
Talks can be tailored to specific groups, such as cultural competency training for heath care providers or a broad overview for undergraduate students from all disciplines.
