During the screening, physician, New York Times bestselling author and internationally recognized speaker, Dr. Michael Greger, in a video recording, will cover the top 15 causes of death in the United States and how they may be prevented, treated or reversed through our diet according to the best available peer-reviewed science.

The presentation is just over an hour long and will be followed by a short discussion. Light refreshments will be served.
