Since 2002 researchers and writers have published countless studies, review articles and books on the controversial topics of food addiction and the food industry’s production of “hyperpalatable foods”. Robin has been busy updating her knowledge about these topics. She will be presenting at other venues including Family Medicine Grand Rounds in 2020.
