Fall 2019 Public Health Nutrition Potluck

If you love food, you would love a Public Health Nutrition potluck. At the beginning of every fall semester, first and second-year students get together with faculty at Dr. Kris Madsen’s beautiful Larkspur home. The first-year students enjoyed chatting, drinking, and eating with the amazing UC Berkeley PHN community. The table was filled with delicious and healthy dishes. This year’s hits were vegan buffalo dip, coconut curry soup, and Sunday gravy. YUM!
