Health Care Professionals Flock to PCRM Education Program
More than 400 health care professionals signed up to learn about PCRM’s approach to diet and diabetes control this February in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. At this free dinner program, dietitians, physicians, nurses, and others learned that a low-fat, plant-based approach is effective, nutritionally adequate, and sustainable.
PCRM president Neal Barnard, M.D., and PCRM director of diabetes education and care Caroline Trapp, M.S.N., C.D.E., discussed the latest research on diet and diabetes and explained how to incorporate this new approach into clinical practice. Course participants left with the knowledge and resources to help patients slim down, cut their blood sugars, and reduce or eliminate medication use.
