The McDougall 3-Day Advanced Study Weekend in Santa Rosa, California

Advanced Study Weekend in Santa Rosa, CaliforniaThese weekends are held twice a year and are dedicated to broadening the understanding of plant-food based nutrition and conservative medical care. New opinions and research are presented to our sophisticated audiences. Even though we call them "advanced study," these educational events are designed for the benefit and enjoyment of those just beginning on the road to better health, as well as medical and nutrition professionals. Nor are participants expected to have attended a 10-day program before coming.

Introduction to the McDougall Advanced Study Weekends

Expert guests have included Dean Ornish, MD, Neal Barnard, MD, Henry Heimlich, MD, and Howard Lyman.

 Kathy Freston & John McDougall

The delicious foods served during the weekend dispel a common myth that healthy foods are not satisfying or delicious. Attendees enjoy all-you-can-eat buffet tables filled with Italian Lasagna, Mexican Enchiladas and Burritos, Thai Noodles, Shepherd's Pie, salads and desserts.

For an extra charge, basic blood tests (cholesterol, triglycerides, blood sugar, and thyroid function) can be done during this program.
