More Than 100 PCRM Instructors in 10 Countries
PCRM’s army of Food for Life instructors is growing. After the latest training session held in Washington in May, more than 100 Food for Life instructors in 35 states and 11 countries are certified to teach nutrition and cooking classes. The classes help participants turn complex nutrition research into easy, do-it-yourself meals for cancer and diabetes prevention and survival, along with a special series for children.
Representatives of four Educational Alliance Program partner organizations also joined the May training, bringing the number of institutional partners in the Food for Life program up to 58.
The program’s popularity has grown by leaps and bounds, with a record number of participants applying for the May training session. Participants learned about the benefits of plant-based nutrition in fighting disease from PCRM president Neal Barnard, M.D., and other nutrition experts. They watched a live cooking demonstration by a certified Food for Life instructor and learned how to lead classes in their hometowns and work with the media.
If you are interested in teaching Food for Life classes in your community, the next certification training will take place Nov. 7-9 in Washington, D.C. Participants receive a certificate at the end of the course and a license to teach the program in their home cities.
