The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) is offering a new series of web casts to educate the public on diet and disease, including diabetes, cancer, and heart disease. I have followed the series for Diabetes education and I am excited they are now generalizing the discussions to reach more people!
There is a new topic every Thursday night. Most sessions include a brief lecture by PCRM President Neal Barnard, M.D., and a cooking demonstration, along with success stories and a question/answer session with members of PCRM’s Nutrition Department.
This week’s “Food for Life” TV show is a re-airing of a feature called “The Low Cost of Healthy Eating.”
The show will air tonight, Thursday, August 14, at 8 p.m. EDT. PCRM Nutrition staff members Susan Levin, M.S., R.D., and Jill Eckart, C.H.H.C., will give a lecture on the low cost of healthy eating and Lisa Davis will demonstrate how to make Potato Cabbage Stew. Chef Jason Wyrick created this week’s recipe. Read more about this recipe, including Chef Jason Wyrick’s special notes (PDF).

The class will also be repeated this Saturday, August 16 at 1 p.m. EDT. To connect to the session on Saturday, click here.
If you are unable to attend Thursday or Saturday, you can view any of the many archived shows available to be downloaded.
You can also join the Get-Healthy Club message board, which will allow you to post questions that will be answered by a team of health care professionals.
These are great educational sessions for the whole family and you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your home!
