Mark Rifkin, RD, will speak on "It’s A Puzzle, I Tell Ya! Maintaining and Restoring Bone Density in Vegans." We often think of our bones as nothing more than a non-living frame, when actually it is living tissue, constantly using and exchanging a wide range of nutrients for optimal function, including maintenance of bone density. Only two nutrients are commonly mentioned in that context, when in fact, a wide range of nutrients are required. AND they fit together like a puzzle! Registered Dietitian Mark Rifkin will show us the puzzle, and how vegans can maintain and even restore bone density, regardless of age.

Mark Rifkin holds a Master's Degree in health education and is a Registered Dietitian. Vegan since 1986 and previously in private practice, he is shifting his career focus toward application of plant-based diets for sustainability. He is also highly active in the vegan dietitian community.

Dinner Guests may choose to either bring a dish made without animal products (to serve 8) plus $5 (members pay just $2) donation; pay $15 (members pay just $12) to enjoy dinner and presentation; or pay $5 for presentation only. We eat first, then make announcements, and then hear the presentation. Let us know in advance, if possible, if you plan to pay for dinner rather than bring a dish. RSVP by calling[masked], or emailing [masked]. Meetings are held at Govans Presbyterian Church, 5828 York Rd, Baltimore, 21212. Church is next to the historic Senator Theater. Drive around church to large parking lot, where you'll see the white Earthsave banner near the the Fellowship Hall entry.
