Medical History Interest Group Lecture on Tuesday August 28

The Medical History Interest Group invites you to attend The Health Principles Practiced at John Harvey Kellogg’s Battle Creek Sanitarium presented by Roman Pawlak, PhD, RD, Associate Professor, Department of Nutrition Science, CAHS.  The event is on Tuesday, August 28 at 4:30pm in the Evelyn Fike Laupus Gallery, 4th Floor Laupus Library.

Many people associate his name with the cornflakes he developed, but John Harvey Kellogg was much more than a cereal maker. He crammed the accomplishments of many people into one lifetime, for he was a physician, surgeon, dietitian, inventor, educator, administrator, religious leader, and public speaker.  Additionally, he wrote a number of books and articles that profoundly changed the personal habits of many Americans, and his work still influences the health and dietary habits of many people today.

Roman Pawlak is an Associate Professor of Nutrition in the College of Allied Health Sciences. He has been at ECU for 15 years and has written 8 books. His specializations are vitamin B12 and vegetarianism. He has visited over 60 countries, is a Bible student, and an avid tennis player.


This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided.

The lecture will also feature a pop-up display.
