Veg-ing Out in Loma Linda!

Friday, November 20th – Going Veg trekked out to Loma Linda and the medical center/university there to meet up with two more prominent vegan doctors. Both Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn and Dr. Neal Barnard were there as part of the CHIP conference – no, that’s not an Erik Estrada fan club gathering! Founded by Dr. Hans Diehl, CHIP is an acronym for Coronary Health Improvement Project, you can read more about it HERE.

The Plant-Based Dietitian was thrilled to meet both Doctors Esselstyn and Barnard and they graciously gave of their time before the Going Veg cameras.

Doctor Caldwell Esselstyn is the author of Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease. He has been associated with the Cleveland Clinic since 1968 and he organized the first National Conference on the Elimination of Coronary Artery Disease.

Doctor Neal Barnard is the founder and president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) and the author of Doctor Neal Barnard’s Program for Reversing Diabetes.

As the Plant-Based Dietitian stated, it was “another amazing day in the plant-based world.”
