Medical professionals may receive up to 11.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits, and dietitians may receive up to 11.0 CPEUs for attending the conference, which will feature evidence-based presentations by leading national experts. Description: Interest in plant-based nutrition is rapidly growing among patients and practitioners alike. As more research is publicized indicating that the plant-based diet may be capable of preventing or even reversing many of the most dreaded, deadly health conditions - including type 2 diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s and certain cancers - healthcare providers are increasingly turning to lifestyle medicine as a way to transform their patients’ lives. Attendees of the Sedona Health and Nutrition Conference will learn about the scientific links between diet and chronic disease prevention and control, as well as how to promote lasting behavior modifications that will encourage patients to adopt a plant-based diet and other healthy lifestyle changes. The conference will feature an impressive line-up of speakers with expert knowledge of the plant-based diet, including Michael Greger, MD and Doug Lisle, PhD. Dr. Greger is an internationally recognized professional speaker and author of the New York Times instant bestseller, “How Not to Die.” He has lectured extensively on key public health issues, appearing at the Conference on World Affairs, the National Institutes of Health, the International Bird Flu Summit, and many other notable forums. At the Sedona Health and Nutrition Conference, he will deliver a presentation entitled, “How Not to Die: The Role of Diet in Preventing, Arresting, and Reversing Our Top 15 Killers." In addition to being a general practitioner specializing in clinical nutrition, Dr. Greger is a founding member and Fellow of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine. Dr. Greger’s latest nutritional research may be found at his site, https://nutritionfacts.org. Doug Lisle, PhD is the founder of Esteem Dynamics, a revolutionary, biological approach to human psychology and wellbeing. Heavily influenced by leading scholars like Richard Dawkins, John Tooby and Leda Cosmides, Esteem Dynamics is the product of Dr. Lisle’s 25 years of clinical experience combined with deep insights into evolutionary psychology. Dr. Lisle is also the author of “The Pleasure Trap: Mastering the Hidden Force that Undermines Health and Happiness,” which explores the factors that make humans susceptible to dietary and lifestyle excesses. He will be lecturing on “The Pleasure Trap” at the Sedona Health and Nutrition Conference. After serving on the research staff at the Department of Veteran Affairs at the National Center for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Dr. Lisle is now the Director of Research for the TrueNorth Health Center and a psychologist for the McDougall Wellness Program, both of which are located in Santa Rosa, Calif. Program Objectives: Participants will be able to: • Recognize the links between dietary choices and chronic diseases such as diabetes, obesity, coronary heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease and autoimmune diseases. • Understand the evidence-based research on nutrition and reversal of chronic conditions. • Understand current models of primary care practice based on Lifestyle Medicine principles. • Identify the factors that make individuals susceptible to dietary and lifestyle excesses, and clinical approaches to addressing these factors. • Understand the current state of research regarding the influence of the microbiome on chronic disease, and the role of nutrition in establishing and maintaining optimal microbiome health. • Identify health-promoting foods and general approaches to nutrition that are most beneficial to patient health. • Describe a list of current resources to maintain up-to-date knowledge of nutritional medicine.
