Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease and Alzheimer's Disease for Women Conference by Jane Esselstyn | Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute | Saturday, 09. March 2019

4th Annual
Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease and Alzheimer's Disease for Women
(Pending Approval for 7 CEUs)
Heart disease is the number one killer of women.  Nearly one woman per minute dies of heart disease. - American Heart Association
Two-thirds of people with Alzheimers Disease are women. -The Alzheimers Solution
We women hold many titles in our lives: mother, professional, spouse, community leader, coach, and partner, to name a few. For a variety of reasons both cultural and biolgical, most of us also, at some point in our busy lives, add the role of caretaker and caregiver to those around us. Thus, we are uniquely positioned to transform the heart-health and brain-health of not only ourselves, but of our families and our communities.
The fourth annual Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease and Alzheimer's Disease Conference for Women will arm you with the evidence-based research and practical know-how needed to do just that: transform your own life and the lives of those you love and care for. The power to change your health is yours. You are sitting in the driver's seat with the controls in your hands: the fork, knife, and spoon. We want you to walk away with a head and heart filled with action steps!
Jane Esselstyn, RN has assembled a roster of the country’s leading doctors and researchers whose direct work is disease prevention through nutrition. These experts all agree that the answer to protecting the health of your heart and brain is not going to come in the shape of a pill, procedure, or technological breakthrough, but  from the grocery cart, the garden, and the end of the fork. The aim of our March 9th event is to educate participants about the power of plant-based prevention via presentations, lectures, cooking demos, a delicious lunch, honest dialogue, and extensive Q and A panel. 
Jane is no stranger to plant-based nutrition and disease prevention. She is an author, researcher, mother, wife, registered nurse, teacher, and plant-based recipe creator. Jane and her mother, Ann Crile Esselstyn, co-authored the popular The Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease Cookbook, a companion to the book authored by her father, noted physician Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., MD, author of the NY Times bestseller Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease.  
As the Keynote speaker, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn Jr., Director of the Cardiovascular Disease Prevention and Reversal Program at the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute, will present the latest research and information pertaining to heart health and women. Other nationally-renowned speakers include the nuerologists, research team, and co-authors of The Alzheimer's Solution, A Break Through Program to Prevent and Reverse the Symptoms of Cognitive Decline at Every Stage, Drs. Ayesha and Dean Sherzai. Also, presenting are Dr. Anne Bingham, plant-based obstetrician and gynecologist, and Jane Esselstyn, RN, author of the recipe sections in Plant-Strong and The Engine 2 Seven Day Rescue, and co-author of The Engine 2 Cookbook. Jane and Ann Esselstyn brighten the stage with a plant-perfect cooking demo, and educational consultant Brian Hart  lead a community-based discussion on challenges we all **** when making significant lifestyle changes and how to move forward now.
This day-long seminar will include a delicious, plant-based lunch with a menu designed by Jane Esselstyn and the culinary team from Cleveland Vegan. There will be door prizes, raffles, goodie bags, dancing, take-home tips and tricks, and opportunities for one-on-one conversations with the presenters. 
Anyone is welcome to attend this conference — as all will benefit from this timely information about this approach to healthy living that will empower all to become plant-based, self-care warriors!  We want to see YOU at this event! 
There is a $25 cancellation policy.
