March 22, 2020
BASNCR Spring Meeting

Program: The Power of Food for Health by Neal Barnard, President of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine and Adjunct Professor of Medicine at the George Washington University School of Medicine.
Dr. Barnard will speak about the power of a plant-based diet to heal the body, reduce chronic pain, reverse disease, and maintain healthy weight. These findings are based on numerous studies he’s conducted, including an NIH-funded study on the potential of reversing type-2 diabetes. It is our hope that his talk will inspire a new focus for future botanical illustration projects, exhibitions, and possibly collaborations with Dr. Barnhard.

This meeting is open to the public, but there are only about 20 spaces available for non-BASNCR members. Register with the USBG (opens around Mid-February).
