An article in the 2013 Permanente Journal (Tuso, et al.) concluded, “Physicians should consider recommending a plant-based diet to all their patients, especially those with high blood pressure, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, or obesity.”
The online certificate program, offered via the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies and eCornell, will help you better counsel patients in this effort. It covers the most up-to-date, broad fundamentals of a plant-based diet: The basic rationale for the diet, its effect on cancer, diabetes, and heart disease, and real-world, practical tips that you can share with patients to make meaningful health improvements.
