PCRM Shines in Florida: Continuing Education Program and Sublime Reception
PCRM is sponsoring two events on Feb. 26 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.: the Nutritional Interventions for Diabetes and Other Chronic Diseases continuing education program for health care professionals and a benefit at the legendary Sublime restaurant.
The daylong Nutritional Interventions for Diabetes and Other Chronic Diseases continuing education program will explore the growing body of scientific evidence that supports plant-based nutrition for prevention and reversal of obesity, heart disease, diabetes, certain cancers, and other chronic diseases. Health care professionals will:
- Learn an easy-to-implement approach with proven results.
- Add a new treatment option to fight diabetes, heart disease, and other chronic diseases.
- Explore practical strategies and receive useful resources for medical management of patients implementing a new dietary approach.
- Enjoy a delicious lunch and earn continuing education credits.
Speakers include Caroline Trapp, M.S.N., C.D.E., PCRM director of diabetes education and care, Neal Barnard, M.D., PCRM president and nutrition researcher, and Elizabeth Seeley, R.D., L.D., PCRM Food for Life instructor and public health nutritionist.
The program will offer continuing education credits under the auspices of The George Washington University Medical Center’s Office of Continuing Education in the Health Professions. This activity is sponsored by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.
That evening, PCRM member Nanci Alexander will host a reception in support of PCRM’s lifesaving work at her legendary Sublime restaurant.
The Bon Voyage Party for the Holistic Holiday at Sea Cruise will feature Dr. Barnard and special guests Marilu Henner, John Salley, T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D., and Christina Pirello. This event is open to everyone and is a great opportunity for locals and out-of-towners alike to experience world-class vegan cuisine at this award-winning hot spot.
