Medical Breakthroughs & Discoveries Series: Nutrition Meets Modern Medicine: The Key To Reversing Chronic Disease

The Legacy Foundation, in conjunction with the Shell Point Wellness Connection, is pleased to present the 2019 Medical Breakthroughs & Discoveries Series, a healthcare speaker series designed to share updates on the latest advances in medical research and healthcare practice. This educational series features prominent local and national experts who will address recent advances in the fields of regenerative medicine, Alzheimer’s disease, nutrition, chronic disease and more.

During this presentation, Dr. Michael Klaper, a nationally recognized expert in nutrition-based medicine, will explore the role of eating healthy foods in reversing diabetes, high blood pressure, clogged arteries and other chronic diseases. Practical examples will be given for healthy shopping, food preparation and restaurant dining.

Michael Klaper, M.D., is a graduate of the University of Illinois College of Medicine in Chicago. He received postgraduate training in internal medicine, surgery, anesthesiology and orthopedics at University of British Columbia’s teaching hospitals in Vancouver. Dr. Klaper also received postgraduate training in obstetrics at the University of California in San Francisco. He has practiced acute care medicine in Hawaii, Canada, California, Florida and New Zealand.

A long-time radio host and a pilot, Dr. Klaper has served as nutrition advisor to NASA’s programs for space colonists on the moon and Mars, as well as on the Nutrition Task Force of the American Medical Students Association.

Dr. Klaper finds his current practice incredibly fulfilling, as he focuses on advocating healthy food and lifestyle choices that will help people prevent the need for hospitalization and surgery. He has authored numerous articles on plant-based nutrition and is authoring a book on using plant-based medicine to arrest and reverse disease. To improve his own health, and to minimize suffering of others, Dr. Klaper adopted a plant-based diet in 1981. More information about this program is available on his website, wwww.doctorklaper.com.

All four Medical Breakthroughs & Discoveries presentations are free and open to the public; however, sign-up is required for each program.
