The paradigm of care for people with diabetes is shifting! But not fast enough. It’s time to turn this epidemic around. This presentation will discuss news you can use to do more than “manage” type 2 diabetes. We’ll discuss what is happening with the U.S. Dietary Guidelines, and review a draft of a new Bill of Rights for people with or at risk for diabetes, under development by the American College of Lifestyle Medicine.

Dr. Caroline Trapp is a nurse practitioner and director of diabetes education and care with the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, and also an adjunct faculty member of the University of Michigan School of Nursing. She is board certified in adult primary care, diabetes education and Lifestyle Medicine, with more than 25 years of clinical experience. Dr. Trapp has been an invited speaker in China, the Marshall Islands, the Northern Republic of Macedonia, the Navajo Nation and across the U.S. She was the 2019 inductee into the Nutritional Medicine Hall of Fame (pictured here with Dr. Michael Greger, a past recipient!). In July, Dr. Trapp provided oral testimony to the U.S. Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee in Washington, D.C. Her favorite place to speak is PBNSG!

Improve Your Health EVERY Moment of EVERY Day with Regenerative Living: Medicine of the Future. Michael Dangovian, DO will explain how.

Dr. Michael Dangovian, DO will present Regenerative Living, the medicine of the future that you can learn now. It optimizes our way of living. We already have enough information to prevent the majority of needless suffering, and it's all about our habits and the way we live our lives.

Join us, as Dr. Dangovian's lecture on Regenerative Living will focus on how to improve one's health EVERY moment of EVERY day. Learn how regenerative thoughts, regenerative foods, and regenerative movement can improve you health. Q&A will follow the lecture.

Dr. Dangovian is a board certified and nationally recognized cardiologist at the Wellness Training Institute, founded by him in 2009. The Wellness Training Institute is designed to be a vital community resource center that is aligned with universal laws of nature to achieve your wellness goals.

For over twenty years, Dr. Michael Dangovian has been working with patients in a unique way, integrating yoga, meditation, supplements and education into a traditional cardiology practice. This has allowed him to take the best and most cutting edge modern western science and leverage it with these often overlooked, yet medically proven non-traditional practices. Combining these two “separate” ways of understanding a patient’s body makes for a highly individualized patient experience. More importantly, this approach has allowed Dr. Dangovian to develop a deep understanding of complementary lifestyle practices that not only prevent chronic disease, but even reverse it!

PLEASE NOTE LOCATION CHANGE: This class will now be held at Ernest W. Seaholm High School in the Media Center.

New to a Whole Food Plant-Based Lifestyle or want to learn more about lifestyle choices?

Health is a Gift You Give Yourself with Robert Breakey, MD

Health and vitality are largely the result of lifestyle choices that are available to all of us.

In this seminar, Dr. Breakey will explore why and how a Whole Food Plant-Based lifestyle provides optimal nutrition for people of all ages, and how this will support them in enjoying a long, healthy and productive life well into their elder years. He will then discuss why the Standard American Diet is the root cause for the epidemic of our most common chronic diseases and our spiraling healthcare costs. Dr. Breakey will explore how supporting our communities in adopting a Plant-Based Lifestyle leads to dramatically better health outcomes, including an enhanced experience of care, fewer side effects from treatment protocols and a lower total cost of care.

Robert Breakey, MD is a 5th generation graduate from the University of Michigan Medical School. He completed his Family Medicine residency at the University of Wisconsin in 1984. He has practiced Lifestyle Family Medicine in Ann Arbor since 1985.

He has special interests in health promotion, whole food plant-based nutrition, positive wellness, and supporting the natural healing process that we all have within us. He is Chairman of the Board and Head of the Family Medicine Division for IHA – a multi-specialty medical group centered in and around Ann Arbor, Michigan.

This first Lecture Series event of the 2019/2020 season includes special early bird and lower general admission pricing. Register now, as seating is limited.
