Whole Foods Market : International Plant-Based Nutrition Healthcare Conference Announces Whole Foods Market® Sponsorship

07/10/2014 | 03:05pm US/Eastern

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) July 10, 2014

The International Plant-based Nutrition Healthcare Conference (PBNHC) is pleased to announce Whole Foods Market, the leading natural and organic grocer, as a major sponsor for the Continuing Medical Education (CME) accredited conference designed for physicians and allied medical practitioners. The event is slated for September 17 - 20 at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort in San Diego.

The conference will focus on educating, equipping and empowering physicians with the information and resources they need to understand the nutritional science that overwhelmingly supports the efficacy of whole food, plant-based nutrition in its ability to prevent, suspend and, often, even reverse the alarming chronic diseases that are plaguing our nation and world.

As America's Healthiest Grocery Store™, Whole Foods Market has a long history of supporting healthy eating as a basic foundation for optimum health and well-being. By promoting healthy food choices and providing healthy eating education, the company is committed to inspiring and empowering its stakeholders to make the best health-supportive, delicious food choices to maximize personal health and vitality.

"Whole Foods Market's longstanding commitment to healthy eating education and providing healthy food choices extends beyond the four walls of our stores," said Betsy Foster, global vice president of business development for Whole Foods Market. "The medical community plays a critical role in education around the direct correlation between food and health, so we are excited to support PBNHC and their efforts to promote proven health benefits of whole, plant-based foods."

"The preventive, nutritional medicine message will be central when we convene this September in San Diego," said Conference Co-founder Scott Stoll, MD. "As a physician, I know first-hand that I and my colleagues received formal medical training that was almost exclusively an allopathic--diagnose and treat--approach to medicine, but we now know that this, in and of itself, is not always a best practice nor is it a sustainable form of healthcare. The shift we're now seeing in healthcare is value and outcome-based, which is in the best interest of our patients and our system as a whole. Where health outcomes are concerned, food trumps all."
