Don't Miss This Event Featuring Michael Greger, MD!!!

Uma Purighalla, MD, Cindy West, MD, and Tracey Eakin, Plant-Based Nutrition Counselor are very excited to host Michael Greger, MD, one of the foremost authorities in the country on the impact of nutrition on our health. If you can only make it to one event...make it this one!

Dr. Greger will speak on The Role of Diet in Preventing, Arresting, and Reversing the 15 Leading Causes of Death. Approval for AMA category 1 credit for medical doctors is pending, although this seminar is geared toward anyone interested in the connection between food and our health. It will take place in the Dunlap Conference Center of St. Clair Hospital.

The cost to attend is $10. We are collecting the funds before the event to expedite check-in. Please email [masked] or call [masked] to register. Encourage your loved ones to attend with you.

Dr. Greger has lectured at the National Institutes of Health, the Conference on World Affairs, and has testified before Congress. His most recent scientific publications appeared in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, International Journal of Food Safety, Nutrition, and Public Health, Critical Reviews in Microbiology, Biosecurity & Bioterrorism, Biotechnology - Molecular Studies and Novel Applications for Improved Quality of Human Life, and many others.

    It was fantastic to have Dr. Greger here in the South Hills, and to hear his newest presentation on plant-strong diets.

    This is perfect!!!! I am a HUGE HUGE HUGE fan of Dr. Gregor and I will have family members in town that I'm trying to convince of the benefits of plant-based living! There isn't anyone better than him to convince them of it!

      Erg!!! I am so upset. My family members are going to be arriving late Wednesday evening now, so it looks like we are no longer going to be able to make it. I am soooooo bummed. Sorry this is so last minute in letting you know. I hope it didn't cause too many problems!

      Hi Sarah, that's too bad. I wish you could make it too. And don't worry, you didn't cause me any problems. There's enough time to fill your spot. Take care, Tracey

    Really looking forward to this, I am a natural health coach and am always interested in hearing as many perspectives on health and diet as possible. See you all there!

      Absolutely!!! We have two back-up locations planned if we run out of room. The more the better. Thanks!

    I'm so thrilled he is coming to Pgh! Looking forward to this. I see that there is approval for 1 AMA CEU and was wondering if the credit would apply towards Pennsylvania's CEU requirement for RNs?

      Hi Diann, so glad you're able to make it to Dr. Greger's presentation. If AMA category 1 CE credits can be taken for RN CE credit as well, then I would guess yes. However, if it is a different accrediting body, which I suspect it is, then no. I would suggest checking with whomever you file your credits with to see if this would apply. If you find that it does and can post that on this site, it would be helpful to other RNs that plan to attend.
