Register Today for the Master VEG Program!

October 31, 2013

The next session of the Master VEG Program, beginning Tuesday, January 14, 2014, will be held at LifeQual Center located in Beaverton just off of highway 26. Registration is open for this action-packed eight-week program that will provide you with in-depth information on a healthy, environmentally-sustainable plant-based diet. Presentations will cover plant-based nutrition, the link between diet and chronic disease prevention, the environmental impacts of the foods we grow and eat, the lives of farm animals, animal rights/welfare philosophies as well as arm you with the tools you need to answer the tough questions about plant-based diets.

A key component of the program is the service-oriented project, where attendees are expected to contribute at least 16 volunteer hours to Northwest VEG or another nonprofit organization that concerns itself with one or more of the issues discussed during the course. See nwveg.org/mvp for details and to register.

Dr. Ramona Ilea (pictured right) is an assistant professor of philosophy at Pacific University, Oregon. She teaches a semester-long "Animal Ethics" class, as well as classes on biomedical ethics, environmental ethics, and theoretical ethics. Read more about the MVP presenters.
