I'm ready to geek out on how plants help you live longer and enjoy it more with scientists, physicians, and dietitians this weekend at the second Plant-Based Prevention of Disease Conference. You can too! Read on for two events open to the public, selected talks, and bonus information if you will be in the area.
A Heart Doctor and a Health Documentary
A top lecture and a movie are open to the public for just $5 each at NCSU's McKimmon Center in Raleigh:
- Sept. 12th at 5pm: lecture by Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., “Nutritional Reversal of Cardiovascular Disease: Fact or Fiction?” Dr. Esselstyn is a founding father of the plant-powered nutrition movement.
- Sun. Sept. 13th at 2:15 pm: screening of "Plant Pure Nation" followed by facilitated audience discussion.
My Hot List for Conference Talks
You can register for just one day of the conference or all three. I'm looking forward to the vegan feasts on Saturday and Sunday as well as the following talks.
