Rochester Lifestyle Medicine Institute, leader in lifestyle medicine education, invites medical practitioners to a live (or livestreamed via Zoom from 7-8 pm) evening event, Rekindling the Joy of Practice with Lifestyle Medicine, on Thursday, September 29, 2022, from 6:30 – 9:00 PM ET at the Rochester Academy of Medicine, 1441 East Ave, Rochester, NY 14610. This event will show attendees the benefits of plant-based diet and the potential of lifestyle medicine to empower patients and renew their own joy of practice. 1 AMA CME credit will be offered to medical practitioner attendees. Those who attend virtually will receive a Zoom link prior to the event for the 7-8 pm ET presentation and panel discussion.
Lifestyle Medicine expert Ted Barnett, MD, FACLM, President, Rochester Lifestyle Medicine Institute and Partner, Borg & Ide Imaging, will discuss a study of the Cycle of Culture Change, published in the Journal of Family Practice Journal Jan/Feb 2022, in which Rochester, NY area doctors learned about plant-based nutrition, and referred patients to a 15-day Whole-Food Plant-Based Jumpstart program, with exceptional results. Besides the health benefits to both doctors and patients from learning about and following a plant-based diet, doctors found it satisfying to see their patients’ health improve instead of just managing symptoms.
An interactive panel discussion with audience participation will follow the presentation.
Panel members include:
- Susan Friedman, MD, MPH, AGSF, FACLM, Professor of Medicine at the University of Rochester
- Kerry Graff, MD, DipABFM, DipABLM, Rochester Regional Health
- Natasha Sodhi, MD, DipABFM, DipABLM, Rochester Regional Health
- Allison Ogawa, 4th year medical student and Medical Humanities Fellow at the University of Rochester.
For those attending in person, plant-based appetizers and dessert will be provided by Wegmans Food Market following the program.News Source: EIN News
