Fake News: Nutrition Edition will help you make sense of the confusing and conflicting headlines and wild media claims that are constantly bombarding us.
Presented by our own member, Joan Davis, RN, MS, Certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition, this program will:
• Provide a simple, practical approach to evaluating nutritional claims
• Introduce data bases and resources to get the answers science supports
• Discover “Red Flags” to watch for when reviewing research studies
Food. Much of our life revolves around it. But for most of us, the real power of food, to either improve our health or to sabotage it, simply is not something we've been taught. Oh, sure, tv ads have caused us to believe certain things about certain foods, but is what the advertisers tell us really true?
We're on a journey to learn all we can about food, about health, about what we can do to help ourselves live healthier longer, and we invite you to come along! We'll share what we've learned, and we encourage you to do the same. But we like to have FUN, too! So this isn't just about learning about food...it's about CONNECTING with other people who also want to learn, to share, to just "hang out" and enjoy the company of nice folks and some good food.

The purpose of all of our PBNM Groups is to support efforts towards good health by preventing and reversing chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, hypertension and cancer by eating more plant based foods. We support and welcome all individuals no matter what their current dietary preferences.
PBNM Groups will allow you to experience first hand how wonderful plant based foods can taste while learning many health topics and connecting with other people working toward improving their health.
