Bring Nutrition into Medical Education - Dr. Hyman
In one minute you can change the future of health care, and have an enormous impact on reducing our chronic lifestyle driven disease burden that accounts for 84% of our $3.8 trillion annual health care bill.
Click the link below now and sign the petition below for the ENRICH ACT (Expanding Nutrition’s Role in Curricula and Healthcare (ENRICH) Act, co-sponsored by Reps. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) and Pat Tiberi (R-Ohio), to fund nutrition and physical activity training for doctors in medical school. The funds will come from an existing pool of money and require no “extra” spending and cost the taxpayer nothing.
With one click you can start a domino effect that will address the simple fact that most chronic diseases (heart disease, type 2 diabetes, cancer, dementia, autoimmune disease and more) are caused by food, can be prevented, treated and often reversed by food, yet doctors learn nothing about food in medical school.
Please stop and sign it now! It costs you nothing, but can change everything.

A few weeks ago I made a trip to Washington, DC to help my friend Congressman Tim Ryan introduce the bipartisan ENRICH ACT into Congress. We briefed other Congressman and Senators and their aids, Republican and Democrat. Everyone was supportive and understood the importance to training doctors in lifestyle and nutrition.
