Speakers include Kelly Freeman, NP-C, Palmer MacKie, MD, Timothy O’Donnell, MD, welcoming remarks from Lisa Harris, MD, CEO of Eskenazi Health, and keynote address from Jane Esselstyn, RN. Like many in the Esselstyn family, Jane presents her work, research, and high energy food demos across the country and world. Her presentations, food demonstrations, samples and food parties bring clarity, hilarity, and a can-do attitude to the power of plant-based eating.
