Coffee and Conversations Breakfast 3

GMOs

Our chapter has partnered with Ohio Corn and Wheat Growers (OCWGA) to host monthly breakfasts during spring semester over different topics that our students have choosen and learned about while on their 6 week study abroad to Brazil. March's breakfast was focused on genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Staff from OCWGA and industry experts on the subject joined members over coffee and breakfast to learn more about GMOs and how to handle the conversaiton with a peer who isn't knowledgable on the subject. The chapter heard from Allyson Perry with the Center for Food Integrity who gave a presentation and provided activities to stimulate conversation between experts and students and plans to practice the conversation.

Ohio Corn and Wheat Seminar I

Ohio Corn and Wheat has come to us looking for ways for them to get more invloved with our chapter and all that we do. For our first year members, they gave them each a $1,000.00 scholarship to help with expenses towards their Brazil study abroad trip. For our second and third year members we have set up four seminars that take place the first Tuesday each month for a breakfast. Topics were chosen by the members and each relate to things going on in agriclture today. For this first seminar it was a way that students could meet, talk and learn more about Ohio Corn and Wheat and what they do.
