Event description

Description

Plant-based nutrition – emphasizing consumption of vegetables, whole grains, nuts, seeds, legumes, and fruits – can prevent, treat, or reverse certain chronic diseases in adults based on current best research evidence. Plant-based diets have been shown to have favorable effects in the prevention and treatment of obesity, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, coronary artery disease and hyperlipidemia.

This conference will share expert views on the scientific evidence supporting plant-based nutrition, and strategies for helping transition to greater dietary plant consumption on the individual and institutional levels.

Target Audience:

The intended audience is individuals in a position to influence awareness, understanding, and implementation of plant-based initiatives in Brooklyn and beyond. More specifically, this includes clinicians (MDs, RNs, NPs, PAs, RDs), public health professionals, resident physicians in training, medical and public health students, and community leaders who are involved with, or have an interest in, plant-based health and nutrition. Consumers and others are welcome to attend.
