Member Support Is Changing the Future of Health Care
This issue’s cover story details PCRM’s Nutrition Guide for Clinicians, a comprehensive manual that explains the link between nutrition and health for America’s health care providers in training. Including nutrition in the treatment for preventing and treating disease is a giant step forward for them and for their patients. That means a big step forward for us all.
Many resources went into the launch of this extraordinary guide. Member contributions funded the thousands of hours that it took our physicians and dietitians to create the guide and covered the cost of printing and distributing the manual to approximately 19,000 second-year medical students, as well as many nurses, dietitians, and other health professionals. The continued support of PCRM members will help ensure that the Guide will be updated and placed in the hands of more medical students in 2008. Along with the Guide, PCRM experts have also developed the comprehensive website, NutritionMD.org, medical conferences, Web materials, monographs for continuing medical education, and outstanding educational materials for physicians, scientists, and the lay public. Participating in the education of tomorrow’s clinicians is an effort that should make us all very proud—and just one of the many ways that your membership gifts are effecting positive change in our world.
