Eat Drink Politics President Michele Simon has extensive experience putting research into action through powerful report writing. For example, her groundbreaking 2007 report on alcoholic energy drinks led to federal action to ban the dangerous products as her follow-up case study explains. Her report on food stamps brought attention to powerful industry lobbying. Most recently, “And Now a Word from Our Sponsors” was covered by the New York Times and highlights the conflicted corporate sponsorships of the nation’s largest trade group of nutrition professionals. The report prompted the formation a new group called Dietitians for Professional Integrity, which seeks the very reforms Simon’s report recommends.
