We are on a mission to address the issue of 'nutrition education deficiency' that is holding back healthcare.
Most healthcare professionals lack nutrition education, and may even reflexively advise patients against plant-based diets. Others may tell patients that 'diet makes no difference', which can result in avoidable use of medication and procedures with inevitable side effects, and can even be dangerous as medication needs can change dramatically when dietary changes are made.
Even practitioners who are aware of the benefits of plant-based nutrition are not equipped with the tools to help their patients implement this way of eating an optimal way.
Doctors For Nutrition is working to address these deficiencies in practitioner nutrition knowledge by providing educational resources, events and outreach to up-skill the profession and students about the role of whole-food plant based nutrition in the prevention and treatment of disease.
