Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine

With diabetes at epidemic proportions in the United States I thought I would share this important information from Physician's Committee For Responsible Medicine for people that are interested in changing their diets. Dr. Neal Barnard is doing clinical trials using a vegan diet with amazing beneficial results. His online classes are free to those interested. I receive their email notices and if you are interested here is how you or your loved one can get started (If you notice the date of the class has passed but the archives and power point can be downloaded so please keep reading):

Video Support Group

Thank you for your interest in our diabetes video support group. This exciting new series offers education on diet and diabetes, along with group support. Each week covers a different topic. Most sessions include a brief lecture by PCRM President Neal Barnard, M.D., and a cooking demonstration, along with success stories and answers to your questions with members of PCRM's Nutrition Department.

The next class of this series will be Thursday, April 3, at 8 p.m. EST. The session will last about 30 minutes. You will need a high-speed Internet connection to participate. All of the classes are free of charge.

To connect to the session on Thursday, click here. The link will only work between 8 and 8:30 p.m., as the session will be live.

The class will also be repeated this Saturday, April 5, at 1 p.m. EST. To connect to the session on Saturday, click here.

If you are unable to attend Thursday or Saturday, you can acccess archives of the classes and download PowerPoint presentations.

If you have any questions, please submit them by using the form at the bottom of the screen during the session. You are invited to join our Get-Healthy Club message board, which will allow you to post questions that will be answered by a team of health care professionals.

We look forward to having you join us!
