San Diego, CA (PRWEB) July 31, 2014
Recognizing that today’s medical students are tomorrow’s healthcare leaders, the International Plant-based Nutrition Healthcare Conference announced today its student discount program.
Students currently enrolled in studies of medicine or a healthcare-related field, as well as medical residents in training, may take advantage of special student-only discounts for the conference, scheduled for September 17-20, 2014 in San Diego, CA at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort.
“As a future Registered Dietitian, I’m excited to attend the Plant-based Nutrition Healthcare Conference, because I want to learn more about the latest plant-based nutrition research and how to incorporate it into clinical practice,” said Heather Borders, MBA, currently enrolled at the University of North Florida. “I'm excited to learn from and network with the opinion leaders who’ll be presenting, with the impressive line-up spanning various clinical disciplines.”
Interested students are invited to visit the student application page of the conference website. Each applicant is asked to provide a brief essay explaining their interest in both preventive, nutritional medicine and in attending the International Plant-based Nutrition Healthcare Conference.
Students receive a $500 discount off the full conference registration fee. Registration includes all course materials, program booklet, thumb drive with presentations, conference memento and nine chef prepared plant-based meals.
When asked why her fellow students should join her in San Diego this September, Heather emphasized, “The consequences from several decades of highly processed food and substantial increases in dairy and meat-centric meals have finally caught up with our nation,” adding, “Whether someone has aspirations to be a nurse, physician, or registered dietitian, the future of medicine will require clinicians to collaborate and focus their efforts on helping patients increase their intake of fiber-rich, plant-based foods.”
“The alarming rise of chronic disease trends, among both adults and children, is sounding the wake-up call in the medical community,” said Scott Stoll, MD, co-founder of the International Plant-based Nutrition Healthcare Conference. “It’s critical that preventive, nutritional medicine, which is sorely lacking in our medical schools, become the foundation of our nation’s health care system.”
