We are so excited to have this dynamic speaker, Dr. Richard Oppenlander come to Sacramento! He had a standing ovation in San Fransisco. His presentation will be based on his outstanding book, Comfortably Unaware.
Dr. Oppenlander is a sustainability and wellness advocate, writer, and speaker committed to improving the health of our planet. He brings an eclectic combination of experiences regarding this topic spanning the past 40 years. He is president and founder of an organic vegan food production and education business, an animal rescue operation, and has given hundreds of lectures, presentations, and open discussions on the topic of food choice. Dr. Oppenlander and his wife Jill have also raised three children on a purely plant-based lifestyle, all of whichare ranked and active athletes.
Dr. Oppenlander takes a three-pronged approach to convey the ways in which our food choices are affecting human health, the planet's health and the welfare of the animals, while discussing why sustainability initiatives would benefit from including food choice as a relevant topic in curbing global depletion.
