Dr. Miles Hassell, Author of Good Food, Great Medicine, to Speak at St. Charles


Dr. Miles Hassell, author of Good Food, Great Medicine, is coming to the St. Charles Bend Conference Center January 10 to talk about how nine simple food and lifestyle choices can improve your health and risk profile without deprivation.

An internist and medical director of the Integrative Medicine Program at Providence Cancer Center, Hassell’s work focuses on evidence-based ways to use diet and lifestyle for optimal health. He pursues aggressive risk factor management for heart disease, stroke, Type 2 diabetes and dementia, and offers dietary counsel using a whole food Mediterranean diet model.

St. Charles is hosting this event as part of its aim to improve the health of our community,” said Lizzi Katz, community education coordinator for the St. Charles Cancer Center. “There are so many fad plans for eating. It is very confusing to know what really is healthy. Dr. Hassell is able to explain evidence-based steps toward wellness in a way that is easy for his audience to understand.”

Hassell’s free talk, “Choosing Good Health: Which Diet and Lifestyle Choices Really Matter?” starts at 5:30 p.m. and will address:

  • How do I make the best food choices to improve my health? What does the research tell us?
  • Should I take nutritional supplements?
  • Is Type 2 diabetes reversal possible?
  • How can I practically reduce my risk for heart disease, stroke, cancer, Type 2 diabetes and dementia?

In addition to the free talk, there will be a health and wellness exhibit from 4:30 to 5:30pm featuring St. Charles’ programs for support and healthy lifestyles, and a sampling of recipes from Hassell’s cookbook, Good Food, Great Medicine.
