how did you hear about the boulder vegan meetup?

Researching vegan topics near Denver

what made you decide to go Vegan/ explore a more compassionate lifestyle?

I work in health care and I am so concerned about where health costs are heading in our country. Childhood obesity and subsequent diabetes need to be addressed. I read the China Study and feel lack of healthy nutrition is a major factor affecting the health and wellness of our citizens. I am also so concerned by the conditions of animals in factory farms. I could hardly read the last expose in Veg News. I feel compelled to ask my friends and family to watch, "Forks over Knives." I love to cook and want to help people adopt a more healthy and compassionate lifestyle. About 5 of my friends are making the transition. Becoming vegan was an easy decision. It is a journey and I am always learning new information.

What kind of activities would you like to see the group participate in?

It sounds like a fun group!!! I love road biking, hiking, the events at Chautauqua look wonderful. I would like to discover more of the music and art venues in the area.

on your veg journey, do you have specific challenges that you'd like help with
