Dr. Mark Hyman, “Separating Fat From Fiction: The Slippery Science of Fat”
Many of us have long been told that fat makes us fat, contributes to heart disease and generally erodes our health. Now a growing body of research is debunking our fat-phobia, revealing the health and weight-loss benefits of a higher fat diet rich in eggs, nuts, healthy oils, avocados and other delicious super-foods. Please join us to hear a nationally known health expert, author, speaker and frequent Dr. Oz guest: Cleveland Clinic physician Mark Hyman, MD, who will speak on “Separating Fat From Fiction: The Slippery Science of Fat.”

Dr. Hyman is a practicing family physician, a New York Times bestselling author and an internationally recognized leader, speaker, educator and advocate in the field of Functional Medicine. He is the Pritzker Foundation Chair in Functional Medicine at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine and Director of the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine. He is founder and director of The UltraWellness Center, chairman of the Institute for Functional Medicine, medical editor of The Huffington Post and a regular medical contributor in the media for CBS This Morning, Good Morning America, CNN, The Dr. Oz Show and others.
