April 8 – Ferndale Library Hosting VegMichigan Online Presentation

April 8 – Ferndale Library Hosting VegMichigan Online Presentation

FERNDALE, MI – We all know that veggies are good for us–they’re part of a healthy diet. But can a plant-based diet do more than just improve our current health? Can it help us STAY healthy? Can they even, possibly, replace medications? VegMichigan and Dr. Caroline Trapp will offer some answers on April 8 for a virtual program hosted by the Ferndale Library, discussing a plant-based diet’s healing potentials. Trapp will highlight how a healthy diet can curtail an over-reliance on medications and even reverse the impacts of diabetes.

 

Vitamins and minerals, protein, fiber, antioxidants, and healthy plant compounds can all combine to help reduce health risks. But how, exactly, does that work? That’s what Dr. Trapp will cover in her virtual presentation on April 8–hosted via Zoom. Dr. Trapp is the director of Diabetes Education and Care at the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine and is a nurse practitioner with more than 30 years of experience, specializing in the care of people with diabetes.

The Ferndale Library has previously partnered with VegMichigan to present educational programming regarding plant-based diets’ health benefits. VegMichigan is the largest vegan nonprofit organization in the state, an inclusive organization that regularly coordinates informational events around the region. Their focus is on promoting not only health benefits but the environmental and ethical benefits of plant-based diets.

Trapp, meanwhile, is also a founding board member of Plant-Based Prevention of Disease (P-POD) and an active volunteer with the Plant-Based Nutrition Support Group (PBNSG) of Michigan. Dr. Trapp helped to establish and leads the Nurses Nutrition Network of the Physicians Committee.
