About Audrey Lawson-Sanchez

Audrey is the CEO of Balanced, a nonprofit aimed at making healthy food more accessible in workplaces, schools, hospitals, universities, and retail spaces across the country. Formed in collaboration with leading nutrition expert, Best-Selling author, and founder of NutritionFacts.org, Dr. Michael Greger, Balanced was created to help end the ongoing public health crisis that is associated with the overconsumption of unhealthy foods.

Why You Should Listen

As a former educator and a mother herself, Audrey has seen the power of cheap meat and dairy in schools firsthand and this inspired her to launch Balanced, a nutrition and public health advocacy organization campaigning for healthier menus in schools, worksites, hospitals and other critical institutions in communities across the country.

In this conversation, we get into:

  • The concept of food environments and how this plays a major role in our ability to choose better options.

  • How institutions can change their overall approach to meal planning in order to foster better decision making.

  • Success stories of schools and institutions that have implemented meal changes.

  • Audrey’s future plans to spread the Balanced message further.
