Doctors Learn to Unhook Patients from Problem Foods

Participants learn new recipes and techniques during a lunchtime cooking demonstrationHealth care professionals learned about new treatment options for diabetes, high cholesterol, hypertension, and weight problems this February in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. At PCRM’s continuing education program, doctors, dietitians, and nurses learned how plant-based nutrition can help their patients avoid and even reverse many serious health conditions.

PCRM president Neal Barnard, M.D., and PCRM director of diabetes education and care Caroline Trapp, M.S.N., C.D.E., discussed the latest scientific evidence showing that low-fat vegan diets prevent and reverse type 2 diabetes and other chronic diseases. Participants left with the knowledge and resources to help patients slim down, cut their blood sugars, and reduce or eliminate medication use.
