Physician and Author Inducted into South High Hall of Fame

Neal D. Barnard, M.D., to Lecture in Fargo on 15 September

WASHINGTON—Fargo South High School will honor physician and best-selling author Neal D. Barnard, M.D., with induction into its Hall of Fame at a ceremony on Saturday, Sept. 14. Dr. Barnard will also discuss his most recent work at a free lecture and book signing at the Fargo Barnes & Noble the next day.

A member of Fargo South High School class of 1971, Dr. Barnard is the author of six books, including Foods That Fight Pain, Food for Life and, most recently, Turn Off the Fat Genes. He is also the founder and president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, a nonprofit organization based in Washington, D.C., that promotes preventive medicine and higher standards in research.

Dr. Barnard’s research has appeared in numerous prestigious scientific publications including American Journal of Cardiology, Preventive Medicine, and Scientific American. He is also much in demand as a speaker and for media interviews while traveling widely on book and lecture tours. “South High was a great place to get grounded in sciences, writing and speaking skills--and all the other tools that I’ve needed to draw on,” says Dr. Barnard.

Founded in 1985, the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine is a nonprofit health organization that promotes preventive medicine, conducts clinical research, and encourages higher standards for ethics and effectiveness in research.
