A Plant-Based Diet: Eating for Happiness and Health

Tuesday, April 19th, 6:15pm

Roberson Room (on the third floor, near the Family Maternity Center), Highland Hospital, 1000 South Avenue, Rochester, NY

Participants will learn the rationale behind eating a whole-food, plant-based diet. The power of lifestyle changes to prevent, arrest, and reverse our nation’s most expensive and devastating diseases—including obesity, diabetes, and heart disease—will be addressed. Participants will discover that a healthy plant-based diet is abundant as well as optimal for human health. They will learn how to nourish themselves, and their families and friends, with a diet free of animal products, and will be given advice on shopping for food, and eating at restaurants and social gatherings. They will be able to explain how this way of eating benefits their health, the future of the planet, the welfare of animals, and our nation’s prosperity and security. Physicians and other health care providers will learn how to empower their patients to take charge of their own health by moving as close as possible to a plant-based diet.
