Hi blog readers! A quick note before we get to the event details.
Most of you probably know that in April I was hit by a car making an illegal left turn and suffered serious injures including 11 broken ribs, a broken-in-two-places clavicle that required surgery and two plates, 3 broken vertebrae, and a broken shoulder (which I’m still dealing with as it is the slowest to heal). You can read the details and updates on this series of instagram posts: one, two, three, four. I didn’t do a gofundme or similar, but if you are interested in helping out please get in touch and I can point you to some links.
15 Sept 2018 | Modesto CA | Cancer Prevention talk
I’m working with the Sutter Health Memorial Medical Center on an event that brings together clinicians, farmers, and community members. I’m giving the headlining presentation on plant-based nutrition and cancer prevention. There are workshops and a full meal is included. Have any friends or family members who want to know more about the connection between diet and disease? This would be perfect for them. More info and registration here.
15 October 2018 | Rochester NY | Sports Nutrition
I’m honored to give a talk on sports nutrition as part of the Lifestyle as Medicine Lecture Series at the Rochester Academy of Medicine. In or near Rochester? I’d love if you could make this. Sign up here.
06 April 2019 | Santa Cruz CA | Fueling Physical Activity
First ever Santa Cruz Vegfest! This is going to be super fun. Reed Mangels, PhD, RD is helping to put this on so you know it’s going to be good. Mark your calendars and I’ll see you there. Maybe we can do a group mountain bike ride that weekend?
18-20 May 2019 | Raleigh NC | Time for Public Health Nutrition to Shine
The 6th annual Plant-based Prevention Of Disease national conference returns to Raleigh and it’s going to be the best conference yet! As you probably know I’m a board member and put a lot of work into making this conference evidence-based and affordable. It’s truly a one-of-a-kind event. If you haven’t been, join us in 2019! There’s walkable campus housing so no need for a rental car. We save you money every step of the way! I’m giving the opening address on why, now more than ever, we need to focus on plant foods in healthcare.
Are you part of an organization that puts on events or needs speakers? Let them know I’m available. That’s the most common way I get invited, so please don’t underestimate the power of your suggestion.
