The Role of Diet in Racial Health Disparities
Date: January 22nd, 2021 3:00 pm EST
With death rates as much as 6 times higher in Black America than white America, COVID-19 pointed a glaring spotlight at racial health disparities in the United States. In my hour-long live webinar I addressed the question of why Black Americans live sicker and die younger than their white counterparts way before the pandemic started. Even with the same education and socioeconomic resources, Black Americans suffer disproportionately from chronic disease. What role may dietary patterns be playing and what happens when you feed people soul food that’s good for the soul and put plant-based diets to the test?
All of the information will eventually be available on NutritionFacts.org, but if you don’t want to wait, you can hear it all now by joining me in this live webinar to get all your questions answered.
All of the content was extremely useful. Dr. G is the best teacher, even via the web, I have ever listened to. Clear, engaging, personable, passionate, patient and very interesting.
It is a very cool feeling that there are over 500 people around the globe, who are interested in nutrition and want to know even more. So keep up the good work.
Dr. Greger did a fantastic job bringing his genius knowledge down to my level. I learned so much on all the ways to research effectively, thoroughly and truthfully. He was fantastic! He went over aspects enough times for me to get what he was talking about. So he didn't go too fast. He went just at the right pace. He did it with humor and fascination on a subject that can be tedious, he made it an adventure. I really appreciate all the work and planning that went into the four hours! Can't wait for him to do it again on another subject!
This course is worth so much money and a huge value to those particularly in university and research. Thank you so much for your time and efforts!
Dr. Greger is a rare treasure and his educational style is engaging. Thank you all!
