If you have questions about what’s next for genetically modified foods, or GMO’s, you can pose them to a panel of experts at a community conversation Wednesday night at the Champaign Public Library.

The panel will include speakers from the University of Illinois College Agricultural, Consumer & Environmental Sciences (ACES), the U of I Extension, the Illinois Farm Bureau, and a fifth-generation Illinois farmer.

The Midwest Center for Investigative Reporting is one of the sponsors of this event.  Illinois Public Media’s Brian Moline spoke with Pam Dempsey from the Midwest Center about the goal of tonight’s conversation.

Wednesday night’s event at the Champaign Public Library begins at 7:00.  It’s free, but the organizers would like you to RSVP.  You can register at this link.
