Son of John McDougall, Live in Washington

An invitation to Washington, DC

International Conference on Nutrition in Medicine
Cardiovascular Disease

There is nothing as gratifying in medical practice as learning about the power of nutrition for health and bringing this information to your patients. On July 31-August 1, our friends at the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine will be hosting a 2-day conference in Washington, DC, that will give clinicians exciting new insights and to help them to put them to work. My son Craig McDougall, MD, will be a featured speaker who will share his experience on using a plant-based diet in the clinical setting. Other speakers will talk about the surprising connections between nutrition and back pain, ED, and other conditions, and how heart disease begins surprisingly early in life—perhaps even in utero! Here is an announcement from PCRM. Let me strongly urge you to attend. And say hi to Craig if you do!
