Friends Meeting Hall
Following a fun potluck with friends, join us in welcoming Dr. Craig McDougall. In his practice, Dr. McDougall places a strong emphasis on prevention and treating problems at their cause and chooses to reserve prescribing medications and surgeries as a last resort. He gained a love of helping others live better lives by watching his father, Dr. John McDougall in practice. He attended medical school at Ohio State University, where he met his wife and they both completed residency training at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU). Dr Craig McDougall will share with us his view on plant based eating, discuss the new wellness program he is leading at Kaiser called NWP Healthy Living Program and then open it up to your questions! So bring your inquiries on anything from the paleo diet to vitamins to deficiencies. The potluck will be at the Friends Meeting Hall, 4312 SE Stark, Portland, OR. Come to the potluck at 5:00, the presentation at 6:30, or both! Please bring a plant-based (no animal products, including honey) main dish, salad, or dessert; a card listing its ingredients; and plates and utensils for your use. Need plant-based ideas?

Northwest VEG potlucks are alcohol-free events, and we start eating at about 5:15. For more information email [masked]. A donation of $2–5 per person is suggested to help cover the cost of the room rental.
