News & Events for Health Empowerment // June 16, 2021



Guys, this one is all about you! In celebration of Men’s Health Month, you’re invited to join us live on Facebook or YouTube for our conversation with medical, nutrition, and fitness experts about the chronic diseases most common among men -- and uncover why plants, not protein, are optimal for men's health and longevity. 

Get the scoop from:

  • David Dunaief, MD: Chronic disease and prostate cancer
  • Jeremy Gray, state legislator and former pro-football player: Nutrition advocacy
  • David Goldman, Science Advisor to The Game Changers documentary: Protein science and myths
  • Jason Fonger, tri-athlete: Food as a competitive edge
  • Daniel Shuman: Achieving a healthy weight with a plant-based lifestyle 

You’ll also hear messages from leaders in the food-as-medicine movement, including Michael Klaper, MD, and Joel Fuhrman, MD, as well as Olympic silver medalist Dotsie Bausch’s insights on the downsides of dairy. Stick around for our post-game Q&A session with some of our experts. Special thanks to PPMNY’s plant-strong organizers Jim Spellos, Mitchell Castell, and Bryant Meythaler.
