The Plant Based Nutrition Support Group presents

Doctors Teaching Doctors: Nutritional Information for Doctors

A Professional Seminar

Mounting research points to the Standard American Diet as being largely responsible for the epidemic of chronic diseases that we are experiencing in America, including obesity, diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, Alzheimer’s, several cancers and more. Learn from local practitioners how a plant-based diet can help your patients prevent, arrest and, in many cases, even reverse our nation’s leading causes of disability and early death. By empowering patients and helping them to address the root cause of chronic illness, we can truly make a difference in their lives, while at the same time lowering health care costs, improving their experience of care and greatly enhancing outcomes.

Join us for this engaging and informative seminar on plant-based nutrition!
