“Miracles of a Plant-Based Diet” by Grace Chen, MD, will be presented at the Cameron Center on July 14 at 7 p.m.

Dr. Chen will speak about her experiences working with patients at ʻEkahi Health System’s Dr. Ornish’s Program for Reversing Heart Disease.

She will discuss some of the lesser-known benefits of a plant-based diet, and about arthritis and other auto-immune diseases, like asthma and skin conditions.

Dr. Chen is a board-certified emergency physician with a special interest in lifestyle medicine. After observing many preventable chronic diseases in the emergency room, she was inspired to create a website: 365 Days of Graceful Living at, dedicated to educating people about how chronic diseases can be prevented through lifestyle changes.

The talk is free; no reservations are needed.

The event is presented by the Vegetarian Society of Hawai‘i; refreshments will be provided by Down To Earth.

Cameron Center is located at 95 Mahalani St. in Wailuku.
