From Michael Klaper, M.D. - Moving Medicine Forward
December 2019

“This was a great overview of nutrition and the evidence supporting plant-based diets vs. SAD diets.”... “There was an in depth review of the exact pathways that meat vs plants can heal or harm.”... “The visual pictures of the fat in the blood were eye opening!”

<Michael Klaper

What a remarkable year this has been! Clearly, we are at a tipping point as Western medicine steadily evolves to include plant-based nutrition as a primary means of treating and reversing chronic disease. Moving Medicine Forward's mission is to open the minds of the next generation of doctors to this incredibly powerful tool to heal their patients. I am excited and inspired to be a part of this long overdue “awakening” happening in medicine! Through my in-person appearances and electronic webinars we have reached well over 1,000 medical students across North America and in Europe. The positive response we have had from medical students, clinical faculty and the public affirms we must continue our efforts to keep that momentum going!

Here are the schools at which I presented my lecture, “What I Wish I Had Learned in Medical School About Nutrition” in 2019:

University of Michigan Medical School, Ann Arbor, MI
University of Washington School of Medicine, Seattle, WA
Beaumont Medical College, Rochester, MI
Bastyr College of Naturopathic Medicine, Seattle, WA
Wright State University, Akron, OH
Bouchet School of Naturopathic Medicine, Vancouver, BC
McGill University College of Medicine, Montreal, QB
Escuela de Medicina y Ciencias de la Salud, Guadalajara, Mex.
University of Rochester School of Medicine, NY
Natividad Medical Center, Salinas, CA
Loma Linda University School of Medicine, Loma Linda, CA
Western University of Osteopathic Medicine, Pomona, CA
University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine, Los Angeles, CA
Kaiser Physicians – West Los Angeles Medical Center, Los Angeles, CA
University of California, San Diego, CA
Western University College of Osteopathic Medicine, Lebanon, OR
University of Oregon College of Medicine, Eugene, OR
University of Florida School of Medicine, Gainesville, FL
University of South Florida College of Medicine, Tampa, FL
Nova Southeastern University College of Osteopathic Medicine, Davie, FL

Plus, the mission of MMF was shared with audiences at:

the VegMed conference in London, England
the HealthyVegan event in Tel Aviv, Israel
the VeganTravel cruise in the Baltic Sea
the Holistic Holiday at Sea cruise in the Caribbean
the Derek Simnet podcast in British Columbia, Canada
the Polish Society for Lifestyle Medicine conference in Warsaw, Poland

The feedback at each school and clinic was enthusiastic and encouraging. Here are some of the comments we received:

From medical students:

“This was a great overview of nutrition and the evidence supporting plant-based diets vs. SAD diets.”
“There was an in depth review of the exact pathways that meat vs plants can heal or harm.”
“The visual pictures of the fat in the blood were eye opening!”

From residents and faculty:

“The slides demonstrating the toxins in meat were enlightening!”
“The presentation provided a link from nutrition to basic science, and I would love to hear more…”

And so they shall!

We are already planning our next medical school appearances for 2020.

On behalf of the entire Moving Medicine Forward Team and PlantPure Communities, I would like to thank each of you who have so generously helped support our work so far.

Through our affiliation with PlantPure Communities, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, every dime donated has been used to awaken plant-based awareness in the minds of young medical professionals across North America and internationally. Before 2019 ends, we would ask that you consider making a tax-deductible donation to keep Moving Medicine Forward moving forward!
