Part 1: Chief Cardiologist at Highland Hospital speaks on Plant-Based Nutrition for The Prevention and Reversal of Heart Disease
Dr. Chad Teeters, MD, is the chief cardiologist at Highland Hospital in Rochester, NY, and Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine in the Department of Medicine at the University of Rochester. Dr. Teeters will present the health benefits, specifically cardiac, in transforming to a plant-based diet. Dr. Teeters began his own plant-based journey in the spring of 2016 while attending "A Plant-Based Diet: Eating for Happiness and Health," a 6-week 12-CME course given at Highland Hospital. As of this writing, Dr. Teeters has lost 80+ pounds, his blood pressure was 173 systolic and is now 115-120, and is feeling better than ever! The course was taught by Rochester Lifestyle Medicine's Dr. Ted Barnett.
