Free Aspen talk by “How Not to Die” author

Staff report

Dr. Michael Greger, author of the bestselling book “How Not to Die,” will give a free community presentation at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 8, at Paepcke Auditorium.

Greger’s talk is presented by Aspen Valley Hospital, Dr. Chris Miller and Dr. Kim Scheuer.

Greger is world-renowned for his work related to whole-food, plant-based diets. He will review some of the top causes of death — cancer, heart, kidney, pulmonary and autoimmune diseases, among others — and discuss scientific evidence showing that many illnesses are food-related. Following the program, he will autograph books.

Greger is a founding member and fellow of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine. More information about his work is at NutritionFacts.org.

“He is an engaging speaker with a message that I think will resonate with many people in our community,” Miller said in a statement. “I have personally been motivated by his work, and I think my patients will be as well.”

Valley View Hospital is also sponsoring Dr. Greger for a similar presentation in Carbondale at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 9, at The Orchard Gathering Center.

Both presentations are free. It is unnecessary to sign up for the Aspen program, but reservations are required for the Carbondale program at OneBook@vvh.org.
