PCRM (Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine) is sponsoring these series of 5 FREE community-based classes. They are based on PCRM successful 21-Day Vegan Kickstart program.


The Kickstart has helped thousands of people adopt a plant-based diet to reach their health goals. Depending on one's perspective, the Kickstart is about losing weight, maintaining a healthy weight, or simply embracing an overall healthful diet. 


Discover which foods are optimal for health and weight management, learn about various health topics including blood pressure and digestion, and get empowered with the practical cooking skills needed to help you on your journey to better health. In our classes, attendees do all of this while enjoying a cooking demonstration and tasting delicious, healthful dishes in a supportive group setting.

Praise for the Program -

“These classes have really made a huge difference in my overall diabetes and well-being. I not only feel more energy, sleep better, and was taken off all my diabetes medications. I have also lowered my A1c from 10.8 to 5.7% my triglycerides from 306 mg/dL to 59, and lost 60 pounds after 4 months.” 

    -Carlos Angeles, Chicago, IL


"After 3 months on the program, I have both lost 10 pounds and my blood sugar is controlled after dropping an average of 100 points. My doctor said I could get off all my insulin injections and my A1c is at normal level."

    -Roberto Elguea, Chicago, IL
