A lecture about food nutrition in the United States will take place at 8 p.m. Thursday in the Great Hall of the Memorial Union.

Cindy Goody, who is the senior director of the menu innovation team at McDonald’s in the United States and an ISU alumna, will give the lecture. 

Goody will talk about food nutrition in the United States and a strategy for change as part of Iowa State lecture’s program National Affairs series: When American Values are in Conflict.

Goody develops plans for McDonald’s that align with the company’s “food and nutrition strategy, provides nutritional science expertise and oversees McDonald’s nutritional information and development and communication processes,” according to the lecture’s program website.

Goody earned her master’s degree and later went on to earn a Ph.D. from the University of Iowa.
