Event description

Description

Join us for a screening of Eating You Alive, the third movie in our Lifestyle Medicine/Food for Health film series. This 2016 documentary examines why half of adults in the U.S. suffer from chronic illnesses and how we can reverse this alarming trend. Following the film will be a panel discussion featuring local healthcare practitioners.

"Featuring leading medical experts and researchers, Eating You Alive takes a scientific look at the reasons we’re so sick, who’s responsible for feeding us the wrong information and how we can use whole-food, plant-based nutrition to take control of our health—one bite at a time" (EatingYouAlive.com).

Doors open at 1:30.

About the Panelists

Timothy O'Donnell, MD, is the founder of Coze Health Medical, a private lifestyle medical group in West Lafayette, Indiana and a medical director with Premise Health. He made a shift to pursue Lifestyle Medicine as a career when his two-year-old daughter had a rash that was reversed through the elimination diet by guidance with her allergist. He also reversed his own asthma in his early 20s through dietary changes as well (though not realizing that would be a result). He graduated from Indiana University School of Medicine in 2008 and finished his Family Medicine Residency in 2011. During residency, he completed the Helms Medical Acupuncture course and is board certified in Lifestyle Medicine, Family Medicine and Medical Acupuncture. Dr. O'Donnell enjoys backpacking, arts, cooking, researching and teaching about healthy behaviors and spending time with family.
