Join PCRM in Washington, D.C., for a Continuing Medical Education Seminar

We are pleased to announce that PCRM and The George Washington University Medical Center will jointly sponsor a continuing medical education seminar, Nutrition in Clinical Practice, on April 13 and 14, 2007—the weekend of the Art of Compassion Gala.

We anticipate that this seminar will be the first of many opportunities for PCRM physicians and other health care professionals to receive required continuing education.

Topics will cover the role of diet in weight control, diabetes care, cardiovascular risk reduction, cancer prevention and survival, and women’s health.

PCRM president and GW adjunct associate professor of medicine, Neal Barnard, M.D., and David Jenkins, M.D., Ph.D., Sc.D., creator of the glycemic index, will discuss nutrition and dietary issues related to diabetes care. Cardiology expert Caldwell Esselstyn Jr., M.D., will discuss how dietary choices impact cardiovascular risk reduction. Gordon Saxe, M.D., Ph.D., will provide an overview of the role of diet in cancer prevention and survival. Hope Ferdowsian, M.D., M.P.H., director of clinical research for the Washington Center for Clinical Research, will discuss the role of diet in women’s health.

We hope that you will join us for the launch of this exciting and informative continuing medical education program. If you are a health care professional interested in participating, please visit to receive an e-mail notification when registration opens.
