Avenues to a Vegan Health Care Career

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Many of us who have had our lives transformed by plant-based eating feel the urge to share this lifestyle with others—often through a career in health care. Making the switch to a health care career can be daunting, especially if you come from a non-science background. Let’s look at the health care careers that exist for plant-based practitioners, including dietetics, nutrition, nursing, medicine, and alternative health care. Learn about the education and accreditation requirements necessary to break into these fields, as well as the ins and outs of setting up your own practice, be it virtual or brick-and-mortar. The class will help you to weigh your career options, make informed decisions, and embark confidently on a lifetime of helping others.
