Yellow Springs, OH -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/18/2019 --Dr Stephen Phinney, an internationally renowned physician-researcher in the area of nutrition, inflammation and metabolic health and Chief Medical Officer at Virta Health, will be presenting two programs at the Pathways to Regeneration: Soil, Food and Plant Medicine Conference, to be held Friday, November 1 through Sunday, November 3, 2019. The conference is sponsored by the Arthur Morgan Institute for Community Solutions.
Phinney, an Antioch College alumnus, has 40 years of experience specializing in the nutritional biochemistry of obesity, sports performance, body composition, and metabolic disorders. He is the co- author, along with Jeff Volek Ph.D., RD, of The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living and The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Performance, both considered foundational books in the field. He, Volek, and Sami Inkinen (co-founder of Trulia) are founders of Virta Health, a five-year-old health care start up that is providing the first clinically-proven treatment to safely and sustainably reverse Type 2 diabetes without medications or surgery. Currently Type 2 diabetes costs families, employers, insurers, and the government billions of dollars annually. Changing the paradigm from management to reversal of Type 2 diabetes not only changes the lives of those affected but offers immense savings to our society.
