Founded in 2013, The Plantrician Project is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit corporation dedicated to educating, equipping and empowering physicians, healthcare providers and other health influencers, with the evidence-based knowledge about the indisputable benefits of whole food, plant-based nutrition and its remarkable ability to prevent, suspend, and reverse chronic diseases.
Our programs aim to address the urgent global health crisis caused by suboptimal diets high in ultra-processed and animal-based foods and low in fiber-rich, whole plant-based foods. The industrialized dietary eating pattern contributes to a range of common diseases and leading causes of death worldwide, including cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and many others.
Clinicians who integrate the therapeutic use of plant-based nutrition into their practice can have an exponential impact with physicians averaging 10,000 – 20,000 patients over the course of their careers, creating an exponential opportunity for change. Our comprehensive range of programs include:
- Our premier annual Int’l Plant-Based Nutrition Healthcare Conference
- Plantrician University, a free, evidence-based nutrition education platform for health profession students and faculty worldwide
- The Health Equity & Lifestyle Project Conference in partnership with Healthy Heart Nation to explore health disparities and solutions in the African American Community
- The International Journal of Disease Reversal and Prevention (IJDRP), our open-access peer-reviewed medical journal documenting the science of nutrition and lifestyle
- Plantrician Providers, a searchable, global directory and subscription program for clinicians and allied health professionals
- Plant-Based Quick Start Guides, Pediatric Plant-Based Quick Start Guide, and an online cooking program, Culinary Rx, with Rouxbe Cooking School
- State of the art Regenerative Health program with Rodale Institute, bringing farmers and healthcare practitioners together
When all healthcare professionals are empowered with nutritional science, this could lead to a dramatic decrease in chronic disease, early mortality, and disability for millions worldwide. www.plantricianproject.org
