Caribou, ME CARY Medical Center is doing its part to educate the healthcare community on the benefits of a plant-based diet:
Cary Medical Center will present a four-hour seminar on Sunday, Feb. 25, in the Chan Center that will review the benefits of plant-based nutrition based on the work of Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, a noted physician and surgeon who demonstrated the health benefits of the diet based on research he completed at the famed Cleveland Clinic.
Tammy Smith, a registered nurse, will present the seminar with the assistance of her husband, Dr. Wayne Smith.
Wayne Smith transitioned to plant-based nutrition after a family and personal history of heart disease. The seminar will begin with a plant-based, heart-healthy lunch at 12 noon.
The cost for the Healthy Hearts seminar is $40/ person or $60 for couples. Participants will be eligible to take part in the follow-up sessions that present various recipes, food substitutions, cooking appliances and other important steps as one transitions to a plant-based lifestyle.
Pre-registration for the seminar is required. To register visit carymedicalcenter.org or call 498-1112.
