•P-POD is the finest U.S. conference of fewer than 100 speakers for explaining the impact that plant-based nutrition, combined with lifestyle medicine and health equity, can have on chronic disease in society.
•The P-POD nonprofit has always accepted absolutely zero funding, sponsorship or influence from commercial sources.
•P-POD's registration fees per day are lower than those for most fully accredited professional conferences in the U.S.
•Most of the distinguished researchers, clinicians and educators who speak at P-POD are women, and close to half are people of color.
•Since the 2014 founding, every P-POD Conference has provided continuing education credits to physicians, nurses, dietitians and other practitioners.
•Since December 2017, every in-person P-POD Conference has provided the In-person CME required for candidates for Lifestyle Medicine Diplomate credentialing
•P-POD's innovative curriculum of 13 Core Topic Areas is of unusually high relevance and value for healthcare practitioners and activists today.
•Any nutrition conference should represent Registered Dietitians well among its speakers, and we have done that: 74 RDNs in 15 conferences since our founding.
