Dear Physicians Committee supporter,

I am excited to announce that the Physicians Committee will host the International Conference on Nutrition in Medicine: Cardiovascular Disease on July 31 and Aug. 1, 2015, in Washington, D.C. Please plan to join us for CME, great food, and one of the most important conferences of the year. 

A Focus on Cardiovascular Disease

Recent breakthroughs have revealed that heart disease starts in childhood—perhaps even in utero. Yet we have more powerful interventions than ever before. This conference will share the latest scientific information to help clinicians put these interventions to work.  

Leading experts including Kim Williams, M.D., president of the American College of Cardiology, Caldwell Esselstyn, M.D., of the Cleveland Clinic, and many others will share their insights on the role of nutrition in heart disease, hypertension, stroke, children's health, and other topics. We will zero in especially on how clinicians can bring nutrition into their practices.

On Friday, July 31, the focus is on the surprising origins of heart disease, how it can be prevented and reversed through diet and lifestyle changes, and what clinicians need to know. You will have everything you need to put healthful diets to work for your patients and in your own life.  

On Saturday, the scope widens to examine controversies over the role of pharmaceuticals, the risks of "bad" fats, and the kinds of dietary policies that can end the heart disease epidemic.
