One of the most popular speakers on the Veggie Circuit, Dr. Greger will
use an engaging interactive quiz show format that lets us test our nutrition
knowledge with some surprising outcomes. Dr. Greger has scoured the
world's scholarly literature on clinical nutrition and developed this brand-new
talk of the latest in cutting-edge research. Focusing on studies published
just over the last year in peer-reviewedscientific nutrition journals,
Dr. Greger offers practical advice on how best to feedourselves and our
families to prevent, treat, and even reverse chronic disease.

Known as one of the most entertaining medical speakers of our time, Michael
Greger, MD, is a physician, author, and internationally recognized speaker on
nutrition, food safety, and public health issues. He has lectured at the
Conferenceon World Affairs, the Bird Flu Summit, the National Institutes of Health,
and universities, medical schools, and conferencesaround the world. He is a
graduate of Cornell University School of Agriculture and Tufts University School
of Medicine and is Director of Public Health and Animal Agriculture at The
Humane Society of the United States.

Dr. Greger's presentations are described by audiences as "riveting," "spellbinding,"
and "brilliant," and you can always count on great wit and humor. He is author
of the books BIRD FLU: A Virus of Our Own Hatching, and CARBOPHOBIA:
The Scary Truth Behind America's Low Carb Craze, and has produced nutrition
and cooking DVDs.

Following the presentation, Dr. Greger will do a book signing. His books and
