Since 2013, The Plantrician Project has grown our work from our founding program, the International Plant Based Nutrition Healthcare Conference, to a broad range of transformative initiatives that are educating, equipping, and empowering today’s healthcare providers with the power of nutrition and a whole food plant-based lifestyle. Following is an outline of our current key initiatives made possible by our generous supporters, sponsors, subscribers, and event attendees.
Educate – Conferences and Events
The Plantrician Project educates medical doctors, clinicians, and other health influencers on the undisputable health benefits of eating a plant-based diet. Our conferences and events include:
