Why P-POD?

  • 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.

Attendee Feedback

We actually post on this website all verbal comments we receive about the conference overall.

Excellent academic and practical information.  I feel better informed for responding to everyday questions patients and friends ask.

I do nutrition education with young children, and will adjust some of the things I teach to reflect knowledge gained at the conference.

Hi – just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the conference and appreciated how much hard work went into it! Everyone did a fantastic job.
