San Diego, CA (PRWEB) March 07, 2014
The foremost leaders in the field of preventive, nutritional medicine are scheduled to present September 17-20, 2014 at the second annual International Plant-based Nutrition Healthcare Conference at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort in San Diego, California.
The conference faculty includes an impressive line-up: T. Colin Campbell, PhD, Thomas M. Campbell, MD, Brian Clement, PhD, NMD, Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr., MD, Michael Greger, MD, Micaela Karlsen, PhD Candidate, Michael Klaper, MD, William Li, MD, Doug Lisle, PhD, James Loomis, MD, Terry Mason, MD, FACS, John McDougall, MD, Dean Ornish, MD, Michele Simon, JD, MPH, Scott Stoll, MD and Phil Tuso, MD, FACP.
“Our current paradigm of patient disease management will only change with a physician-led grassroots movement to educate the medical community, inspiring practitioners to utilize nutrition as the foundation for treatment,” said Scott Stoll, MD, conference co-founder. “The movement has begun, and we’re inviting physicians and allied healthcare professionals across this nation and around the world to join us.”
The inaugural Plant-based Nutrition Healthcare Conference drew physicians from six countries and from across the U.S. Michael Greger, MD, a member of both the 2013 and 23014 conference faculties, emphasizes the need for physicians to invest in this type of medical education, saying “We weren’t taught in medical school about clinical nutrition—the powerful tool in the physician toolbox. It can reinvigorate the idealistic spark that drove us into the practice of medicine."
“The solution isn’t about more pills, more procedures or more legislation,” said Dr. Stoll, “The science now overwhelmingly supports the efficacy of whole food, plant-based nutrition in its ability to prevent, suspend and even reverse the chronic conditions that are crippling our nation and the Western world. This is great news for all of us in the medical profession.”
