More About PCRM and Food for Life
Since 1985, the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM, pcrm.org) has been advancing health care through preventative medicine, especially good nutrition, and the implementation of clinical research. The world renowned Dr. Neal Barnard founded PCRM and developed the Food for Life program. He is an Adjunct Associate Professor of Medicine at the George Washington University School of Medicine in Washington, D.C., an NIH-funded nutrition researcher, and President of PCRM. In 2016, he founded the Barnard Medical Center in Washington, D.C., as a model for making nutrition a routine part of all medical care. He is the author of 16 books including Dr. Barnard's Program for Reversing Diabetes, The Cheese Trap, and Your Body in Balance.
Dr. Barnard, with the aid of physicians, nurses, and registered dietitians developed the PCRM Food for Life program in 2001. It is an award-winning, evidence-based, community-focused nutrition education program that promotes a plant-based diet for disease prevention and survival. All instructors have been trained and licensed by PCRM to offer this curriculum in their local communities and for corporations.
PCRM's Food for Life Instructor training is a highly competitive program designed to educate and launch independent instructor's to teach the Food for Life curriculum. Following a very rigorous application process, I was selected to attend the training in Los Angeles, California where I met Dr. Barnard,
Food for Life is now in 10 countries with 295 instructors. I am proud to be one of them and a front line ambassador for PCRM and Food for Life.
