Speaking Events

I am seeking speaking opportunities to share my perspective on the global obesity epidemic and ways we can combat it, on both the personal and global level. In my talks I customarily address the cultural, historical, and nutritional aspects of obesity, screen my documentary short, A Faustian Bargain, and hold a question-and-answer-session. I will tailor my talk to your intended audience (from general-awareness conversations to more technical conversations for healthcare practitioners).

If you would like to invite me to speak at your event, please contact me at dfenyvesi [at] hotmail [dot] com, or fill out my contact form.
