PCRM’s Milton Mills, M.D., Leads Health Seminar
This February, PCRM member physician Milton Mills, M.D., led a two-day health seminar in Oakland, Calif., featuring sessions on the link between diet and disease. The course covered cancer, heart disease, diabetes, dementia, and other chronic diseases.
Dr. Mills, who graduated in 1991 from Stanford University School of Medicine, practices clinic-based outpatient medicine in northern Virginia and works as a critical care physician with Fairfax Hospital in Fairfax, Va. You might recognize him as a video nutrition spokesman for the Discovery Health Channel or as one of the featured doctors in PCRM’s public service announcement on childhood obesity.

PCRM Needs Help Informing Public About Heart Health
Interested in polishing your public speaking skills while informing listeners about the benefits of a vegan diet? Our Heart Health program will allow you to do just that. We are looking for speakers to spread the word about how a vegan diet can help prevent, treat, and reverse heart disease.
Members of service organizations around the country, such as Rotary clubs and similar venues, are eager for good speakers on health topics. We will train you and provide a model speech, visuals, and handouts to guide your 15-minute presentation. What we’ll need from you is a willingness to spread a healthful message.
