The third annual Physician’s conference on nutrition was held in Chicago at The Chopping Block, located in the Merchandise Mart, on June 3rd, 2018. This unique venue is the only conference of it’s type; not only in the Chicago area but most likely in the United States as well! Attendees came from 9 states to attend the conference.
The group heard presentations on the power of nutrition to prevent and possibly reverse disease. Each presentation was followed by a nutritional cooking demo providing easy, quick, healthful, and cost effective ways to incorporate healthful foods into anyone’s daily diet.
The list of speakers can be accessed here. All food demos and lunch meals were 100% whole food plant based plates.
This event was sold out and closed 3 months before the event took place, a great indication of not only the need for this type of venue, but it speaks loudly about the response from the medical community. There is tremendous hope that the role of nutrition in preventing and reversing chronic illness is becoming better known and accepted.
It was an amazing day with an amazing group of physicians, nurse practitioners and healthcare professionals.
