Free Presentation by Dr. Robert Breakey @ Caroline Kennedy Library
Jun 11 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Health is a Gift You Give Yourself Presented by Dr. Robert Breakey

VegMichigan and the Dearborn Heights Caroline Kennedy Library are hosting a free presentation by Dr. Robert Breakey, MD. Our “Standard American Diet” is largely responsible for the epidemic of chronic diseases that we are experiencing in America including obesity, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, hypertension, heart disease, and several cancers. The good news is that we have made great progress in identifying the root causes for these chronic diseases, and we are recognizing that all of them are largely preventable, and many are even reversible through some straightforward lifestyle changes. By choosing whole plant-based foods that are truly health supporting, engaging in at least moderate exercise and ensuring that we sleep well, we have the opportunity to greatly enhance our health and vitality well into our elder years. Free vegan food samples will be provided by VegMichigan.

No RSVP is necessary, just show up if you can make it! For details, click here
