Penn State researcher Penny Kris-Etherton will talk about research on how canola oil and a healthy diet may lead to weight loss.

This research will be the focus of an upcoming Facebook Live event at noon on Wednesday, Jan. 18. Kris-Etherton is a distinguished professor of nutrition whose research focuses on how diet can affect heart health. The event will include a food demonstration showing viewers how to incorporate canola oil into a heart-healthy diet, as well as a question-and-answer session.
