David Wallinga, M.D., M.P.A., is Senior Advisor in Science, Food and Health, at IATP. Dr. Wallinga applies a systems lens to think about health impacts of food and how it is produced, processed, packaged and distributed in today's global, industrialized food system. IATP identifies strategies for consumers to find healthier food produced more sustainably, as well as public policies that can help build food systems that also are healthier, less polluting and less obesogenic, while supporting farmers and rural communities. From 2009 through 2010, Dr. Wallinga was a William T. Grant Foundation Distinguished Fellow in Food Systems and Public Health at University of Minnesota, School of Public Health. He received a medical degree from the University of Minnesota Medical School, a master’s degree from Princeton University and a bachelor’s from Dartmouth College.
