Whole-food plant-based Jumpstart for a Deaf and Hard of Hearing study and paper published

Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH) patients are at high risk of developing chronic illness, and when they do, are at higher risk of poor outcomes than in a hearing community.

We adapted our online, Zoom-based, medically-facilitated 15-Day Whole-Food Plant-Based (WFPB) Jumpstart program to give DHH participants knowledge, skills, and support to make dietary changes to improve their health!

Participants joined from across the USA and Canada. The majority were experincing chronic lifestyle diseases before participating in the 15 day Jumpstart health intervention. For those who submitted, labs and biomearkers were greatly improved post-Jumpstart.

We conducted a study and then published it. Read the published article:
