While our own Food Policy Advocacy initiatives are still being formulated, we strongly support initiatives by others about which you should be aware, not the least of which is the AMA Policy, which PBNM’s Founder and President, Dr Steven Lome supported at the 2018 AMA Convention in Chicago. Pictured here, from the Convention floor, is Dr Lome with Dr Neal Barnard, founder and President of the Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM.org) in Washington, DC. Dr Lome shared some details about this event and the Policy itself in this blog post.
