VIDEO: Guest Experts Talks by Tanisha Burford and Amanda Northcross

The last videos in the Como Water video series are two talks by guest experts Dr. Tanisha Burford, a personality psychologist and Dr. Amanda Northcross, who has a background in environmental chemistry and engineering.

In Tanisha’s talk, she discusses the intersection of eating and her Jamaican cultural heritage, as well as how her notion of eating and food changed when she moved to the United States.

Amanda also discusses culture and food, as well as the connections between food and her family traditions. She is accompanied by her mom, which makes this talk super special. Enjoy!
