August 4, 2014

Join Northwest VEG and Adventist Medical on September 26 at the Oregon Convention Center for the 5th annual Enhancing Health with Plant-based Nutrition Medical Conference.

We all know that medical doctors get very little nutrition training, but good nutrition can be key to preventing and reversing type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and many other chronic illnesses. That message is now getting out, and this year Kaiser Permanente and Legacy Health have both signed on as supporters of Enhancing Health with Plant-Based Nutrition, the professional health conference sponsored by Northwest VEG and Adventist Health.

This year, Joel Fuhrman, MD, author of Eat to Live and The End of Diabetes will be the conference keynote speaker, joining five other diet and nutrition experts from around the country in presenting the latest information on plant-based nutrition. The conference is aimed at health care professionals, including nurses, dietitians, and health coaches as well as doctors, but other are welcome to attend. 6.25 Continuing Education Credits will be provided for health professionals. Help us get the word out by sharing this information so that others will know of this great opportunity for inexpensive continuing education credits. Registration is now open!
