Distinguished Lecture Series - Diet & Mood

We’ve all heard the saying, “You are what you eat!,” but most of us don't connect this truism to how we feel. Our body and mind are inseparable, so what we eat affects both our physical and mental
health. To learn more about how your daily diet contributes to your mood, attend the University of
South Alabama Baldwin County’s distinguished lecture, Diet and Mood.

The lecture will be held on Sunday, January 25, 3:00 p.m. at USA Baldwin County’s Performance Center located at the corner of St. James and Summit Streets in downtown Fairhope.

Dr. Larry Christensen, University of South Alabama, Chair, Department of Psychology, will focus on carbohydrate cravings and the relationship between mood and carbohydrate cravings as well as the relationship between depression and food intake.

Dr. Christensen earned his Bachelor of Science, Master of Science and Doctoral degrees from the University of Southern Mississippi. He was a professor in the Department of Psychology with Texas A&M University for 26 years before coming to the University of South Alabama where he has served as Chair of the Department of Psychology since 1994. In 2007, Dr. Christensen published the 10th edition of Experimental Methodology.

We look forward to seeing you at the lecture. Reservations are requested; please call (251) 928-8133 or e-mail to reserve your seat. To learn about additional programs offered at USA Baldwin County visit our website,
