Rochester Lifestyle Medicine Institute arranged for Milton Mills, MD to bring to our Rochester audience the ground-breaking lecture he premiered at Vegan Summerfest 2019—a talk which has become even more urgent in the light of current events
The Impact of Historical Racial Bias on the Health Profiles of Communities of Color
October 1 was World Vegetarian Day and the first day of World Vegetarian Month, culminating on November 1 with World Vegan Day.
Rochester Lifestyle Medicine Institute is striving to bring a plant-based diet to the mainstream with its 15-Day Whole-Food Plant-Based Jumpstart and other programs! Please support us as we try to bring about a culture change, so that a plant-based diet is encouraged and supported by the health care system, and is reflected in official dietary recommendations and medical protocols!
Milton Mills, MD is a physician who has worked with the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine to redress racial inequities in dietary recommendations. Dr. Mills is an intensivist (critical care/ICU) physician, actively practicing in the Washington, DC area. He speaks on a wide variety of topics, including the microbiome, the connection between diet and cancer, human anatomical adaptation to plant-based diet, and what the Bible has to say about diet, as well as connections between the civil rights movement and veganism. Dr. Mills’s insights into the legacy of racism and its impact on the health of communities of color are not to be missed.
