The Purjes Foundation is sponsoring the Nutrition/Lifestyle as Treatment for Illness Fund at the University of Florida. The new program, run by the University’s Medical Center will feature lectures by prominent physicians who have brought about significant reversal of chronic diseases through plant-based nutrition. The 3-day program will also feature cooking classes for the physician attendees, as well as plant-based shopping guidelines and deciphering nutrition labels. Dr. Monica Aggarwal, a cardiologist at the University of Florida Medical Center & School, will head the new program.
