Zoom Chat with a Plant-Based Cardiologist, Dr. Monica Aggarwal

December 11, 2020 @ 1:00 pm 2:00 pm

Join us as we chat with Dr. Monica Aggarwal, plant-based cardiologist and co-author of “Body on Fire: How Inflammation Triggers Chronic Illness and the Tools we have to Fight it”.

Dr. Aggarwal is an associate professor of medicine in the University of Florida Division of Cardiovascular Medicine. Serving as the Director of Integrative Cardiology and Prevention at the University of Florida, she focuses on promoting food as the foundation of healing and for its medicinal value. She is also the Director of Medical Education for Cardiology, where she directs education for medical residents and cardiology fellows, with a focus on prevention, nutrition and lifestyle. In the hospital, she has multiple initiatives including developing a 100% plant based menu for cardiac and vascular patients!

Dr. Aggarwal, who was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis shortly after the birth of her third child, will share her own story of transformation and healing and address our questions pertaining to reducing inflammation and preventing heart disease.

This is an online event, and so a Zoom link will be available on the Meetup page shortly before the event begins.
