Judith Barr

"Food and Quality of Life"

From Judith Barr:
"We seek comfort and companionship with food (Paris Soirees Dinners as an example) and how food is so central to who we are and our quality of life. What happens when, as a result of some illness or other condition, we have to change what we eat? How does this affect our quality of life and how can we measure that change?

Colleagues and I at Northeastern University have conducted a number of focus groups with all types of individuals across the country. It would be great to briefly describe the role of food and our work in this field and get some international flavor on what others think"

Judith Barr is Associate Professor and Director, National Education and Research Center for Outcomes Assessment

For Patricia's profiles visit:

Patricia writes about being an expat:

"...As the years went by, I also realized that the feeling of being foreign and other, transcends even race. You are not part of their (French) culture. It doesn’t matter who you are or of what origin you are. You’re either French (in your head and behaviour), or you’re not. When I began to see that, I began to identify myself as an expat. The sum of being an American who lives in Paris, an African-American trying to find roots here, minus not being French – but seeing life internationally – on a large scale and permanently, equals my personal experience of being a expat."
