What an absolute honor it was to speak at the Food as Medicine Conference in Philadelphia, PA. It was a surreal experience to be speaking on a panel alongside my nutrition heros and share the same space with them on a stage. I was so excited to share my knowledge and help others to easily transition to a plant based diet.
Here are some photos from the day – this is the first of many conferences of this sort in Philly, so I am excited to speak at more of them!
Making the crowd laugh!

I not only got to meet Dr. T. Colin Campbell in person, but I had the honor of thanking him for his lifetime of work in plant based science and nutrition. I said, “Because of you – because of your work, I’m able to help so many people and I just want to thank you for all that you’ve done. I’ve helped people reverse diabetes, I’ve helped cancer patients, I’ve helped people with heart disease…” He replied, “You kids take this information and do so many incredible things with it! It’s amazing.”
I also heard from the photographer that Dr. Campbell was laughing at some of my jokes during my presentation, so that pretty much just made my life complete.
What a day. I couldn’t have dreamed it of going any better than it did. I can’t wait for the next one!
