Greater Green Bay STEM Network: Getting the Sunshine In: Badger Talk with Kevin Walters

Saturday10/1910:00 am - 11:00 am

Vitamin D supplements, vitamin D milk, and, yes, even vitamin D beer – they all originated right here in Wisconsin. But why here, and how did they do it? The answers to those questions involve a millennia-old mystery about the connections between diseases and foods, a 19th century scientific competition to be the first to figure out the secrets of nutrition, and the 20th century emergence of American consumerism. They also involve a heavy dose of what we like to call the Wisconsin Idea. You’ll also find out why so many Wisconsinites used to smuggle margarine across the border.

Join us at the Brown County Library to hear from WARF’s Kevin Walters.
