PBNM Founder Resuscitates Two Fellow Runners During Half Marathon

What are the odds?

During a road race, not one, but two runners collapse with cardiac arrest. It gets better. In an incredible stroke of good luck, in each case a cardiologist happens to be running right behind to administer life-saving care. The SAME cardiologist.

According to a recent article in Runner’s World, that’s exactly what occurred at the Monterey Bay Half Marathon on November 13. It gets even better. The cardiologist in question was none other than Dr. Steven Lome, O.D.—who founded Plant Based Nutrition Movement in 2018.

We’re thankful that Dr. Lome happened to be running this race and for his heroic actions during the stricken runners’ time of greatest need. It’s stories like this that inspire all of us at PBNM to help others overcome their unhealthy lifestyle habits through healthy eating and reverse chronic conditions such as heart disease and diabetes.

Because odds are, a cardiologist may not be nearby when you desperately need one.
