***One of Our Most Important and Interesting Events of 2019***

Our meetup group is co-sponsoring with the charismatic *vegan* Borough President of Brooklyn, Eric Adams (!!), a FREE talk at Brooklyn Borough Hall featuring the Brooklyn Borough President himself, and his brilliant personal doctor, Dr. David Dunaief, speaking on the topic of:

Reversing and Preventing Chronic Diseases with a Healthy Vegan Diet

Talk Details:

A whole food, plant-based diet is the best approach for your health, but being vegan, in itself, is not always healthy. Join us as we debunk the bunk associated with a plant-based approach. We will look at diet through the prism of nutrient density, protein, carbohydrates and fiber, exploring what the research tells us about their effects on chronic illnesses. We will delve into the research around diet's impact on diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, autoimmune diseases, chronic kidney disease, cancer and more.

About The Speakers:

Brooklyn Borough President, Eric Adams, has firsthand experience reversing diabetes with lifestyle changes and has leveraged his personal experience to drive health policy changes that improve the quality of life for New Yorkers.

David Dunaief, M.D. has 12 years' experience as an integrative clinician, researcher, author and speaker. Dr. Dunaief has helped more than 1,000 patients reverse disease and achieve optimal health with his integrative approach and has performed substantial clinical research in this area, including a study he published with Joel Fuhrman, M.D., bestselling author of Eat To Live, on the effects of a nutrient-dense diet on diabetes.

We are thrilled to be co-sponsoring this amazing free talk at Brooklyn Borough Hall with our heroic vegan Borough President Eric Adams. His co-presenter, Dr. David Dunaief, is Borough President Eric Adams' personal physician, and is a brilliant nutrition researcher. I happen to know that Dr. Dunaief's thinking is very much along the lines of Dr. Joel Fuhrman. We could not be having a better and more exciting talk on "Reversing and Preventing Chronic Diseases with a Healthy Vegan Diet." And it is free!
