Event Description
Event hosted by Healthy World Sedona.

The Sedona Health & Nutrition Conference is a professional conference targeted toward medical practitioners, providing the latest information on the benefits of a whole food plant-based lifestyle as a healing modality.  Attendees learn from nationally known medical experts on both theoretical and practical applications of food as medicine. Attendance qualifies for CME/CEU credits.

 

Discover how plant-based nutrition is changing the landscape of medical practice in the U.S. 

This annual conference, now in its third year, is the first in Northern Arizona to present the latest information on the science and practice of “food as medicine”  – medicine that goes beyond managing chronic conditions to promote true healing. Learn the latest information on plant-based nutrition, the effects of diet on chronic disease prevention and control, and how to promote lasting behavior change toward an optimum plant-based diet for patients and clients.

Interest in plant-based diets is rapidly growing. Practitioners are now successfully using this interest and information in a clinical setting to change the lives of their patients.

This conference, designed for healthcare professionals, offers up to 10.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits for many medical professionals, and 10.0 CPEUs from the Commission on Dietetic Registration for registered dietitians. Others with interest in nutrition and health may also attend.
