Healthy Approaches to Weight Control, Reversing Diabetes, and the Best of Health

Due to popular response, registration for this event is now closed. If you have not yet registered but would like to attend, please note that we will open any remaining seats to walk-in customers at 6:50 pm, and simulcast viewing is available in the branch. Everyone who attends may purchase books and get them autographed.

Neal Barnard, M.D., renowned nutrition researcher and New York Times bestselling author, discusses the connection between nutrition and health. Dr. Barnard’s clinical research revolutionized the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Learn how to control and even reverse this condition. Discover how the same simple diet changes that benefit diabetes patients also bring a wide range of health benefits, including weight control, lower cholesterol levels, protection from memory loss, and greater vitality. Dr. Barnard reveals a proven method of weight control that relies on food choices rather than starvation diets or gimmicks.

A Well & Wise event. Presented in partnership with Howard County Department of Citizen Services and Office on Aging. (Meet the Author, HCLS Signature Event.)
