The NCVA is very happy to have secured VegNews columnist Dr. Kerrie Saunders, MS, LLP, PhD as our third Veg Fest speaker.

Dr. Kerrie Saunders MS, LLP, PhD is the author of “The Vegan Diet as Chronic Disease Prevention” (Lantern Books), a must-have resource for anyone serious about health. This physician-patient resource book was published in 2003 and is currently in its third printing.

She began her career in 1987 as a Master’s level clinical psychologist. After post-graduate work in research at the Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, she earned her Doctoral degree in Natural Health.

Dr. Saunders is one of four Global Diabetes Moderators for the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.

She has presented to audiences from Hawaii to Toronto, and her popular advice column “Dear Dr. Kerrie” has been regularly featured in the award-winning vegan lifestyle magazine, VegNews.

While working as the Food and Fitness Consultant at the McIntyre Health Center for Integrated Medicine, she earned the nickname, “Dr. Food.” Dr. Saunders teaches clients and medical professionals to use controllable lifestyle factors like food and fitness to help prevent or reverse food cravings and many chronic disease processes like cancer, diabetes, heart disease, IBS and obesity.

At Veg Fest, Dr. Saunders’ presentation will be about using diet as a method of disease prevention. For more on her visit
