This is a NW Veg sponsored presentation on Jan 16, 2011 in Portland, OR. Dr. Richard Heitsch, MD, heads the Integrated Medicine Group in Portland and is a trained Surgeon with a Masters Degree in Public Health, with a wide experience in general and trauma surgery as well as sports medicine and rehabilitation.
The talk centers around plant vs animal protein, and nutritional aspects of a vegan diet. Dr. Heitsch is an advocate for the methods used by Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn at the Cleveland Clinic. Changing to a plant-based diet offers dramatic health benefits.
This talk includes some Q&A from the audience, which was a record turnout for these NW Veg monthly events.
