The HBCU College of Plant-based Lifestyle Medicine is a 501c3 educational organization whose mission is to transform primary care delivery by educating and empowering medical professionals of color that are alumni, professors, health science students and staff at HBCUs along with healthcare professions who serve those in marginalized communities that suffer disproportionately from chronic disease and have greater susceptibility to communicable diseases. The World Health Organization announced that they expect another Pandemic sometime in 2024 and to prevent the worse outcomes for those in marginalized communities that suffer from chronic disease, this summit has been planed in conjunction with the Plantbased World Expo to provide healthcare leaders and plant food manufacturers with an understanding of the power of THE TEN LAWS of Plant-Based Lifestyle Medicine in the treatment, prevention and even reversal of many chronic diseases and many communicable diseases.
The aim of the Summit is to introduce THE TEN LAWS as an effective evidenced based comprehensive medical intervention that utilizes “Plant Food as Medicine” along with the nine (9) lifestyle interventions to treat disease which are free and available to anyone regardless of economic status or lack of access to any healthcare facility. This introductory program will provide a deep dive into the medical literature that supports THE TEN LAWS.
While the Plant-based/Vegan food and supplements industries have grown to a combined $10.1 Billion dollar industry with projected growth to $20 Billion by 2025 with the help of the fast adoption of the plant-based diet by African-Americans based on health needs, there is much misinformation/disinformation about the effectiveness of Plant-Based Lifestyle Medicine in emergency situations and as a long term practice.
This summit will dispel the myths and provide the evidence any healthcare practitioner needs to confidently educate patients about the wholistic benefits of THE TEN LAWS of Plant-based Lifestyle Medicine.
All members of the our sister organization the Plant Based Food Association (PBFA) are also invited to this summit were we will discuss the special role of plant-based food manufactures in the development of truly healthy and culturally tasteful foods. The HBCU-CPLM has developed a new Plant-based Cafeteria Meal Plan planned to be rolled out in 2024 and we want PBFA members to learn about our efforts to develop a new supply stream on the over 100 HBCU campuses in the Southeast.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
PBFA members and physicians, nurses, dieticians, PhDs, Health Equity leaders and all levels of healthcare providers that work with the vulnerable and those in marginalized communities that suffer from chronic disease on or around HBCU campuses or any in other setting.
