Event Description

Food for Thought

What happens when your dear friend says “You’re obese, and I’m terrified for you”?

Do you walk out the door?

Do you stop … listen … and start an honest conversation?

Friends with a Cause: Choosing Health over Obsession, Obesity, and Food Addiction

with Diane Smith

Join us June 10 to hear Diane’s personal stories of how a book collaboration with Mika Brzezinski led to a discovery of food obsession, health issues, and the power of friendship.

All proceeds benefit the Community Foundation’s Sari A. Rosenbaum Fund for Women & Girls.

Connecticut’s own Diane Smith is an Emmy award winning TV journalist, radio talk show host, author, and speaker. Diane is president of Diane Smith Media, and the anchor and senior producer for program development at CT-N, the Connecticut version of C-SPAN. Six books have been published based on Diane’s very popular “Positively Connecticut” TV series.

Diane collaborated with Mika Brzezinski on Obsessed: America’s Food Addiction and My Own. Diane will be available to sign copies of the book after the program.
