Photography

P-POD assumes it has permission to utilize, for promotional and educational purposes, photographic images of the conference proceedings and incidental audience presence, unless prior written notification is received from individual attendees that such permission is withheld with regard to them.

Cancellation

A cancellation could always be an opportunity to exercise extraordinary generosity and donate your payments to the P-POD Scholarship Fund.

Any cancellation that results from your own illness or that of your immediate family members, will allow you these options:  
• applying toward any future P-POD event, all payments we received;  or
• if notice is received more than 8 days before the conference you registered for, receiving full refunds without any cancellation fee.

A cancellation for any other reason, requested 45 days or more prior to the conference you registered for, will allow you these options:
• applying toward any future P-POD event, all payments we received;  or
• receiving a refund of all payments we received, minus $45 which will go into the P-POD Scholarship Fund.

A cancellation for any other reason, requested less than 45 days but more than 8 days prior to the conference you registered for, will allow you these options:
• refunding 50% of the total amounts paid, or else applying 90% of the total paid toward any future P-POD event (with remainders going to the P-POD Scholarship Fund).

A cancellation for any other reason, requested 8 days or less prior to the conference you registered for, will allow you this option:
• applying toward any other P-POD event, 1/3rd of all payments we received, with the remainder going to the P-POD Scholarship Fund.

Scholarships

We're pleased to continue our scholarship program, which launched in 2019.  A small number of full registration-fee-only scholarships will be awarded in the coming months for our October 2021 event.  [Please note also that various opportunities for volunteer participation do come up throughout the year.  If interested, please see our Volunteer page.] 

YOU ARE ELIGIBLE TO BE CONSIDERED IF:
(1) You have not yet registered for the conference.
(2) You have a good reason for attending P-POD.
(3) You can demonstrate financial need that is an obstacle to your attendance.
(4) You have not received a P-POD scholarship in the past.

SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION TIMELINE:
(1) Our October 2021 scholarship application may now be downloaded at
scholarship.p-pod.org.

(2) You must apply by a Friday, August 27, 2021 deadline for the October 23-24 in-person Lifestyle Med. 10+, Orlando FL.

(3) Scholarship award recipients will be notified by Friday, September 3, 2021.


(4) If you are a recipient, you must accept or decline the offer within one week of its being made.

(5) If you are offered a scholarship and you live outside the local area of the conference, then the scholarship will be considered confirmed and final when you provide confirmation that you have made travel and housing arrangements for attending.  We require this, because many nonprofits who offer event scholarship programs, experience a large number of "no-shows", thus we want to be able to transfer your award to another qualified person if you cannot follow through.  Please note that P-POD has arranged for reasonably priced hotel rooms to be available for any interested attendees on-site at the conference facility.  All conference details are at lifestylemed.p-pod.org, which also links to our page dedicated to hotel accommodations and booking.

SCHOLARSHIPS IN MEMORIAM:
Please note that all scholarships awarded by P-POD are given in the memory of one or more deceased individuals, as follows:

  • Cesar Chavez, nonviolent activist for farmworker rights, and a vegan.

  • George Eisman, one of the founding members of the Vegetarian Nutrition Dietetic Practice Group.

  • Julie Loveless, one of our pioneering volunteers from the first two conference years of P-POD.

  • Meghan Murphy, the founding Director of the T. Colin Campbell Foundation.

  • Florence Nightingale, one of the key historical figures in the evolution of the nursing profession in the U.S.
