SOLD OUT: The Miracle of Plant-Based Diets – Presentation by Dr. Kahn @ Northville District Library
Jan 15 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

 
Please Note: This limited-seating event has sold out!
 
Dr. Joel Kahn will present the science of why a healthy plant-based diet provides all of the nutrition needed to live a healthy and active lifestyle during all stages of life. He will also discuss the growing medical research showing the ability of a plant-based diet to halt and reverse some of the major reasons why we age, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and even some cancers. Dr. Kahn will also show you how to get started on living your best life. A delicious plant-based food sampling will follow his presentation.
 
Dr. Kahn serves as Clinical Professor of Medicine, Wayne State University School of Medicine. He has authored 5 books, the latest of which is the Plant-Based Solution. He is a Summa Cum Laude graduate of the University of Michigan School of Medicine. He writes health articles, is a commentator on Fox 2 News, has a national public TV show, The Whole Heart Solution, and has been seen on The Doctors and Dr. Phil show. Dr. Kahn has treated thousands of acute heart attacks during his career but he’d like to prevent them from happening in the first place. Dr. Kahn and his family are the owners of the very successful GreenSpace Cafe, a plant-based restaurant in downtown Ferndale, where they prove that healthy food can also taste great! He has been plant-based for over 40 years and lectures across the country on optimal health and diet. He can be found at www.drjoelkahn.com.

Flint Dinner Club @ Jacq n’ Diane’s Juice Box
Jan 17 @ 6:00 pm

Since the Flint-area Dinner Club had such a great time there last year, we figured we’d go back and visit Jacq N Diane’s Juice Box in Holly. With many of us making new year’s resolutions to eat in healthier ways, what a wonderful time to visit an all-vegan, nearly all-raw restaurant (that also happens to be really delicious!). Plus, the owner, Jacquie Allen, has agreed to answer questions about juicing and raw eating and present information about her journey to healthy living.

We will be meeting on Thursday, January 17th at 6 pm at Jacq N Diane’s Juice Box, located at 3034 Grange Hall Road, Holly, MI 48442. Check out their website, jacqndianesjuicebox.com to see their menu (including an amazing raw, vegan cheesecake).

We hope you can join us! Please RSVP to kate@vegmichigan.org
