The McDougall Research & Education Foundation has funded a study on the dietary treatment of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) with the Oregon Health & Science University in Portland. The Neurology Department of the School of Medicine, headed by Dennis Bourdette, MD and under the supervision of Vijayshree Yadav, MD, enrolled patients in the McDougall Program for intervention with a low-fat vegan diet. This is a single-blind, controlled trial using the latest MRI technologies and neurologic evaluations.

We are now using some of our foundation money for the education of medical students and medical residents from the US and around the world to learn how to practice diet-therapy. Help us support this unique opportunity to change the way medicine is practiced in the 21st century. Learning students now spend 10-days working directly with Dr. McDougall and the McDougall Team in Santa Rosa, CA. This financial support is only available to students (not practicing physicians).
