October 3, 2013

On September 20, 2013, nearly 300 health care professionals, students, and others with a strong interest in nutrition, attended the 4th Annual Enhancing Health with Plant-Based Nutrition Health Conference making it by far our most successful conference to date. One attendee came all the way from Bangladesh just to attend. This evidence-based educational event was co-sponsored by Northwest VEG and Adventist Medical Center and made possible through generous food donations and months of dedication from our hard working volunteers. For more information on the conference presentations, see the articles on Brenda Davis,RD., Dr. Hans Diehl, Dr. Mark Kinjo, Susan Levin, RD, and Dr. John McDougall by Teresa Bergen from the Examiner.
