Diabetes 2021: Healing with Plant-Based Foods

April 8 - 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

VegMichigan is excited to partner with the Ferndale Public Library for a virtual presentation by Dr. Caroline Trapp.

Dr. Caroline Trapp, nurse practitioner and director of diabetes education and care with the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine will provide an update on new research and resources, and answer your questions on how to prevent over-reliance on medications and turn diabetes around through the power of plant-based eating.

Dr. Trapp is the director of diabetes education & care at the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, and is a nurse practitioner with more than 30 years of experience, specializing in the care of people with diabetes. Her degrees are from the University of Michigan (BSN), University of Pennsylvania (MSN), and Madonna University (DNP). She is board-certified in adult primary care nursing, diabetes education, and lifestyle medicine. She is an adjunct faculty member at the University of Michigan School of Nursing.

Dr. Trapp’s work with the Physicians Committee has taken her to China, the Northern Republic of Macedonia, Canada, the Marshall Islands, all over the U.S., and to Native American tribal lands and Pueblos. Across these diverse settings, she has found tremendous interest from health professionals and the public on the potential for evidence-based nutrition for diabetes prevention, treatment, and reversal.

Dr. Trapp was awarded Oakland University’s Nightingale Award for Education and Research in 2012 and inducted as a Fellow of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners in 2013. She is a founding board member of Plant-based Prevention of Disease (P-POD) and an active volunteer with the Plant-Based Nutrition Support Group (PBNSG) of Michigan. Dr. Trapp helped to establish and leads the Nurses Nutrition Network of the Physicians Committee.
