Certified Cancer and Diabetes Nutrition Programs



Certified Cancer Support & Prevention Nutrition Program

As a proud PCRM member, I offer this four-part series which includes short videos featuring Dr. Neal Barnard and is then supported by a cancer survival and prevention cooking class where you will taste and begin to understand the hows and the whys food plays such a significant role in strengthening our immune system and thus, supporting good health. These classes are only taught by certified instructors who earned their training through the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM). Currently offered at the Center for Plant-based Living.

Certified Diabetes Culinary and Nutrition Education for Reversal and Prevention Program

This 8-series program designed by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM)  is intended for people with type 2 diabetes, pre-diabetes, a family history or risk factors for developing diabetes and their adult family members. The classes will help you understand how and why diabetes begins, how it can be halted, reversed and prevented from coming back. Each class offers a video, supportive and educational instruction and conversation, tasty and easy-to-prepare food and most of the time a cooking demonstration. For additional information on how a plant-based diet can prevent and treat diabetes, please refer to this paper.
