We're facing another pandemic

Now is the time for change!

Chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity and more are ravaging the global population unchecked.  We are facing a looming pandemic with incalculable consequences. The same can be said for many of our most pressing global sustainability issues. 

A major cause of both and solution for both is one and the same: our food choices. Our industrialized Western diet is the cause. Humanity’s shift to a predominantly whole food, plant-based diet is the solution. Now is the time to make a change. 

We're Planting The Seeds Of Change

We're transforming health,
healthcare and the food ecosystem

Physicians and healthcare professionals are often the gatekeepers of patient and client dietary recommendations. Until wellness practitioners understand and embrace the benefits of the whole food plant-based dietary lifestyle,  in turn, promote patient adoption, a dietary shift on a broad scale will be elusive.

Plantrician Education Series: Plant-Based Potlucks and the Power of Community

During the 2023 PBNHC, Dr. Scott Stoll presented his keynote lecture “Connection Cultivates Change” with an invitation to attendees to plan their own community whole food, plant-based potluck. Since then, beginning with Dr. Stoll’s inaugural Plantrician CommUnity Potluck in Nashville, we have received dozens of messages from our community excited to plan their own potluck! Our team has created a Free Plantrician Potluck Guide to help with planning, and we have also launched a shared map to “Pin your Potluck” to help connect with others in the community.

We invite you to join Dr. Scott Stoll and our Plantrician Project Team, with special guest Dr. Columbus Batiste, on Tuesday, January 30th at 7:30pm ET / 4:30pm PT as we gather for our first ever Plantrician CommUnity Virtual Potluck! During our potluck, Dr. Stoll and our team will take a deeper dive into our Plantrician Potluck Guide and the featured recipes, answer your questions, and offer thoughts about the importance of gathering in community around the plant-based plate.
