Star-Studded Celebration Marks PCRM’s 20th Anniversary
On April 16, Alec Baldwin, Emmylou Harris, Alicia Silverstone, Daryl Hannah, and Super Size Me director Morgan Spurlock will join hundreds of PCRM members and some of America’s leading physicians at a gala event in Washington, D.C., to celebrate PCRM’s founding.
Highlights of the 20th anniversary will include a presentation on a groundbreaking new insulin assay developed by PCRM scientists, the debut of a public service announcement about cancer prevention narrated by Academy Award–winning actor Sir Anthony Hopkins, and presentation of the Benjamin Spock Award for Compassion in Medicine by Mary Morgan, widow of the late pediatrician.
Twenty years ago, president Neal Barnard, M.D., established PCRM to address the near-absence of preventive medicine and nutrition in American medicine and the continued unethical use of animals in research laboratories, as well as controversial human experiments.
Since then, PCRM has become a major voice on the international scene, speaking out against cruel experiments and promoting a more compassionate and innovative approach to medicine.
