HEALTH & WELLNESS STAGE – Sunday, 2:25 pm
How would you like to spend your next decades? In vibrant health, feeling productive, and enjoying grandchildren and friends, or focussed on diminishing health, pills and feeding tubes? We have the power to choose. In this presentation, Vesanto Melina will summarize key points in moving towards or adopting a plant-based diet and reducing your risk of chronic disease. You will be inspired, and learn that healthy eating can be delicious, simple, and fun!
