How Not to Age” event inspires hundreds with its hopeful, science-based message

February 26, 2024

We recently hosted an event featuring the renowned Dr. Michael Greger, physician, professional speaker, and author of “How Not to Die” and “How Not to Age.” Organized by CAA’s student chapter and a wonderful planning team as part of Dr. Greger’s book tour, the event drew more than 300 participants. The talk proved highly informative and impactful, leaving a lasting impression on the audience.

Sierra Carter from H.E.A.L. MPLS kicked off the event, setting the stage for Dr. Greger’s talk. The engaging session, filled with hope and backed by science, was followed by a Q & A with insightful questions from the audience. Attendees also had the chance to explore tables set up by like-minded organizations such as Brightside Produce, Lotus Health, and Plant-Pure Communities. Dr. Greger’s book was available for purchase, and he graciously signed copies and took photos with attendees before and after the event. He was even signing books on the sidewalk right up until he had to head to the airport!

The impact of the event was significant, with over 90% of attendees expressing high satisfaction. Most crucially, it influenced people to change their behaviors.  A remarkable 83% indicated they would incorporate more plant-based foods into their diets. Among the 30% who identified as having an omnivorous diet, 71% stated they would eat less meat, and 64% intended to reduce dairy consumption. And more than 90% report that they plan to share information on healthy eating with others!

This positive feedback and commitment to behavioral changes indicate a successful event. All our volunteers, especially our planning committee, deserve sincere thanks for making this gathering possible. Its impact is sure to resonate into the future with positive changes in both people’s health and the well-being of animals.
