Neal Barnard, M.D., Physician + Founder of Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine
Introduction by Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams

Join us to learn how a plant-based diet can heal the body and prevent disease. Dr. Barnard, an adjunct professor at the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Science, will discuss the science behind plant-strong diets, explain gluten sensitivity, and reveal the long-term consequences of the popular paleo and ketogenic diets. Learn what his ground-breaking research has revealed about diabetes, cancer, and Alzheimer's prevention. As a political advocate for transparency in the food industry, Dr. Barnard will highlight the ethical conflict of interest within the mandate of the USDA, the governmental agency meant to protect the health of the American public while promoting the meat and dairy industries. Find out why this matters to your health and what you can do about it.

Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams, who successfully reversed his Type 2 diabetes through diet, will introduce Dr. Barnard and share his own health story. Cosponsored by Plant Powered Manhattan.
