Personally I would really like to see this happen somewhere on campus. I don't have any contacts at UT, does anyone else? We would need an accessible location that could seat up to 100 folks. Any suggestions?

K-Town Vegans,

I have just won a "lottery" of life. What normally takes months of effort and cajoling, just fell into my lap. I need your support and advice whether we take advantage of this wonderful opportunity.

My "lottery win" is a leading doctor in the vegan medical movement has generously offered to speak to our group. Dr. Michael Greger, physician, author, professional speaker, Director Humane Society, expert witness, can speak to us on Wed March 6, 2013.

Dr. Greger is a leading pillar of the vegan community along with Drs. Neil Barnard, John McDougall, Caldwell Esselstyn, T. Colin Campbell, and Dean Ornish. He delivers with entergaining sense of humor and straight faced irony the recent medical research and practical vegan advice. He offers CDs, books, DVDs with proceeds donated to charity. We are truly fortunate to be offered this opportunity.

The challenge - our K-Town Vegan group has grown at an amazing pace from a handful to over 100 members in a few years. We are capable of hosting this event, but it needs a personal commitment from each member. We need a commitment of 100 attendees willing to pay $5-$10 to cover airfare costs.

To keep costs low, Dr. Greger has accepted being hosted in our home and we will provide meals and local transportation. We have heard Dr Greger speak at national events costing much more. This opportunity is a bargain. But it's up to you.


Dr Michael Greger

Wednesday, March 6, 2013

Proposed location -Multipurpose Room Knoxville Fist Seventh-Day Adventist Church 3611 Kingston Pike Knoxville TN 37919

Who he is..      or google   "Michael Greger youtube" to get his free 2-minute youtube videos

Reply to this email - define your commitment level. We will need flyers, publicity, event hosts, "ticket sales", and more. No time for long discussion. Reply by Wednesday.

Your responses will determine whether we proceed with this event. Let's discuss quickly as I need to respond to Dr. Greger this week.

Thank you,

Janice Church
