Our work

We are working to grow awareness about the benefits of whole food plant-based nutrition among healthcare professionals, the general public and health-related institutions. Through evidence-based education, outreach and research on optimum human nutrition, we aim to prevent unnecessary suffering for patients, increase career satisfaction for practitioners and reduce the unsustainable costs of healthcare.

Practitioner education

We are working to address the existing deficiencies in practitioner nutrition knowledge through education of healthcare professionals and students about using food as medicine.

Institutional advocacy

We advocate to decision makers across the healthcare sector from government to key peak bodies, to highlight the powerful evidence in favour of whole food plant-based nutrition.
