SPEAKER

Dr. Renae Thomas (B-BMed, MBBS with honours) first became interested in food and health before she even started school, whilst watching her father incorporate lifestyle changes shortly after he was diagnosed with cancer. She continues to have a passion for nutrition, physical activity, social connections, and stress reduction, and how these influence disease prevention, recovery, and ongoing maintenance of health. Dr. Thomas migrated from Australia to Bluezone Loma Linda, California, and is currently a resident, and the lifestyle and wellness representative, in their Family and Preventive medicine residency combined program, which includes a masters in Public Health. She completed an internship at True North Health Centre in 2016, is a board member of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine Physicians in Training division, a PCRM spokesperson, McDougall Starch Solution and Dietary Therapy graduate, and a qualified yoga teacher.

Dr. Thomas is planning to give a brief overview of her experiences, discuss the ways in which lifestyle can be used as medicine, run through some of the evidence we have for plant-based nutrition, give examples of how to help people where they are at, and then open the floor for conversation and questions.
