Ronette Briefel, Dr.P.H, R.D. – Congressional Briefing: The State of Nutrition on the School Lunch Tray

On April 23 2014, the Physicians Committee hosted a briefing on the state of nutrition in the school lunch program. Academic experts and public health professionals will discuss how the changes in the school lunch program have impacted the nutritional content of what is on the tray and the importance of the school lunch and breakfast programs for addressing both food insecurity and a growing obesity epidemic among low-income children.

Ronette Briefel is a senior fellow in Mathematica’s Washington, DC, office. Briefel is currently principal investigator for a random assignment study to improve food security among low-income children in the summer and a Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) breastfeeding policy inventory for the United States Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service; and an evaluation of model communities linking public health and primary care for the Health Resources and Services Administration.

阿雅呼籲台灣大眾一起反對米格魯狂犬病實驗 Aya urges Taiwanese to Oppose Rabies Animal Experiments – #Helping others with #HeathTips and #Research #Videos



哈囉大家好,我是阿雅。
我認為台灣是一個非常文明、進步又有愛心的地方。
所以呢不應該用米格魯的幼犬來做狂犬疫苗的活體實驗。
現在這項實驗在歐盟呢已經同意,是用血清呢還有一些技術的方式來完成實驗。
所以完全不需要用動物的活體。
台灣呢是一個非常有愛,
台灣人呢也很善良,
所以為了台灣的國際形象,也為了發揮台灣人的本性,
我們應該一起反對,用米格魯的幼犬來做活體實驗。

Hi there, I am Aya.
I believe Taiwan is a very civilized, progressive and loving place.
Therefore, Taiwan should not expose unvaccinated beagle puppies to the rabies virus for vaccine potency test.
European Union has agreed that using serum and some techniques (in vitro virus neutralization assays) can determine the efficacy of vaccines.
Therefore it is completely unnecessary to use animal experiments.
Taiwan is a very loving place.
Taiwanese people also have good hearts.
Therefore, in order to protect Taiwan’s image and to show Taiwanese people’s kindness, we should together oppose to the rabies experiments on the beagle puppies.
