Dr. Milena Esherick Presents at Sutter Health's Plant-Based Diet Symposium

Master's Program Director Milena Esherick was a featured speaker at Sutter Health's Plant Based Diet Symposium on November 22, 2014.

The goal of the Burlingame, California conference was to educate the medical community about how the conventional North American diet contributes to many chronic health conditions, and how a plant based diet prevents and reverses many of these conditions. Dr. Esherick's talk addressed psychological strategies for motivating patients to make a successful shift to a plant-strong diet. Other Symposium presenters included Dr. Michael Klaper, former nutrition advisor to NASA; Brenda Davis, RD, lead nutritionist for the Diabetes Wellness Research Project; and John Robbins, author of Diet for a New America.
