Event Description

6th annual national nonprofit
Plant-based Prevention Of Disease
(P-POD) Conference

Saturday May 18 – Monday May 20, 2018

We are thrilled to announce plans for the 6th (and greatest!) annual national nonprofit Plant-based Prevention Of Disease (P-POD) Conference! For 2020, we expect to go to another part of the U.S., but for 2019 we return to Raleigh NC, May 18-20, 2019 (at the McKimmon Conference Center).

Our focus as always is evidence-based nutrition in the prevention and even treatment of cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes and other chronic diseases, and our speakers will be a truly remarkable and diverse array of distinguished researchers, clinicians and educators. The first 19 speakers are pictured and named in the flyer above, and more than half a dozen more will be named.

We are proud that we accept zero commercial funding, sponsorship or influence, and we seek to maintain more affordable registration prices than would be found for most accredited professional conferences in the U.S., so that a a broad diverse spectrum of grassroots practitioners, educators and students may also participate.

There will be a 17 hour educational program (Sat. 1 pm to Mon. 12:45 pm), vegan whole foods meals, and optional fitness related activities, and low-cost walking-distance campus apartments will be available. There will be a smaller-scale registration option to skip either Saturday afternoon or Monday.
