Dr. Fuhrman’s educational and inspiring lectures on how to achieve sustainable weight loss, and how to reverse and prevent heart disease, diabetes and cancer through proper nutrition will continue to be the central focus of the getaway. But as an added bonus, he has invited Michael Greger, M.D., creator of the website NutritionFacts.org and author of the nutrition-based book, “How Not to Die,” to present two lectures based on his book.
