I am 67 yo podiatrist retired from Kaiser Permanente in Sacramento. I have been following a whole food plant based for approximately 7-8 yrs. I assisted in various veganfests that we put on for staff and family while working at KP. I have also assisted in one study on plant based eating that took place in Berkeley, which was partially sponsored by Whole Foods Co. I continue to be very interested in seeing this dietary pattern being introduced into mainstream medicine and volunteer whenever opportunities present.
