Nelson's 10/5/18 Update

by Agile Collaborator October 05, 2018

On November 1, the nonprofit PlantPure Communities is holding its annual Party with a Purpose event in NYC.  Anyone is welcome to attend.

My father, Dr. T. Colin Campbell, will start off the evening with some discussion about the importance of grassroots action to promote the message of plant-based nutrition, and then I will follow with some discussion about how we can do what he suggests.  Executive Director Jody Kass will finish the presentation segment with a short update of recent progress by PlantPure Communities.  Once the presentations are done, we will have a lively Q & A session. If you are interested, you can find more detail here.

Much has happened since our last event a year ago.  The Pod network continues its impressive growth, now including over 500 Pods and involving more than 100,000 people!  Several Oasis initiatives also were supported by PlantPure Communities over the prior year, testing strategies for getting the plant-based nutrition message into underserved communities.  Most exciting, an unprecedented opportunity has developed to partner with large physician network to serve underserved neighborhoods in New York City.  We will share more information on this after the project launches.

In addition to these areas of focus, PlantPure Communities will spearhead an effort in 2019 to promote the food connection to climate change.  Many people do not understand the severity of climate change, nor do they understand the role our food choices play in this problem.  We are discussing strategies now for how PlantPure Communities might take the lead to raise public awareness on this important point.

If you are in the NYC area or can get there from someplace else, please consider coming to our event on November 1, and if you cannot make it but still want to participate, we will be livestreaming the event. 

Until next time,

Nelson

Nelson's 9/21/18 Update

by Nelson Campbell September 21, 2018

Hope all of you are doing well. We are introducing today a new newsletter format. We hope you find this easier to navigate. With this format, you can see our content at a glance and decide what you want to read. For this week’s newsletter, I would like to draw your attention to a website launched by Dr. Jamie Koufman. She has an interesting story, which you can see under the “About Us” tab at DrCampbell4Nobel.org. Dr. Koufman launched this site to draw public attention to the idea that my father should be nominated for the Nobel Prize in Medicine.

Six months ago, Matt Gagnon weighed 100 lbs more than he does today and was on medicine for two different chronic diseases.  Matt had been on many diets over the years and had gained and lost 60 to 80 lbs multiple times. His diet was mostly meat and fast food, so how did he break this unhealthy cycle?  He watched Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead and was so inspired that he decided to try juicing for 2 months.
