The Rochester Area Vegetarian Society and ARAUNY are co-sponsoring Dr. Greger following a vegan share-a-dish dinner.
5:30 PM Vegan Dinner
7:00 PM Program

Brighton Town Park Lodge, 777 Westfall Road, Rochester NY

Michael Greger, M.D. is the Director of Public Health and Animal Agriculture at the Humane Society of the United States. Dr. Greger has scoured the world’s scholarly literature on clinical nutrition and developed this brand-new talk on the latest in cutting-edge research. He will introduce an engaging new interactive quiz-show format that lets us test our nutrition knowledge with some surprising outcomes. Focusing on studies published in peer-reviewed scientific nutrition journals during the last year, Dr. Greger offers practical advice on how best to feed ourselves and our families to prevent, treat, and even reverse chronic disease. His presentation will begin promptly at 7:00 PM.

Dinner is a vegan potluck. Vegan means no animal products (no meat, poultry, fish, eggs, or dairy products). Please bring a dish with enough to serve a crowd and a serving utensil; also bring a place setting for your own dinner. We can help non-vegetarians or others uncertain about how to make or bring a vegan dish; please call 234-8750 for help. There will also be an entirely optional vegan cookie exchange: take home as many as you bring.

Free to RAVS and ARAUNY members. $3 guest fee for non-members, unless you join at the meeting.
