Although disappointed Dr. Klaper won’t be here with us on April 1 for presentations at UAMS, I was pleased to find this information about his podcast interview with Rich Roll. Enjoy!
At the heart of this podcast are evidence-based conversations with leading clinicians at the intersection of nutrition and functional health.
Today we honor this long-standing tradition with one of my favorite medical minds.
Meet Michael Klaper, MD.
For the past 40 years, Dr. Klaper has distinguished himself as a gifted general practitioner, internationally recognized teacher, and sought-after speaker on diet, health, applied plant-based nutrition and integrative medicine.
After receiving his medical degree from the University of Illinois College of Medicine in Chicago, Dr. Klaper has served in many capacities as a clinician with training in a wide variety of disciplines, including internal medicine, surgery, anesthesiology, orthopedics, obstetrics, and acute care.
In addition to spending eight years at the TrueNorth Health Center in Santa Rosa, California, Dr. Klaper served as an advisor to the NASA project on nutrition for long-term space colonization and a member of the Nutrition Task Force of the American Medical Student Association
Currently immersed in the most important work of his career, Dr. Klaper is lecturing at medical schools nationwide, educating students on using plant-predominant nutrition and positive lifestyle changes to truly heal their patients — and ultimately improve the health of future generations.
Today Dr. Klaper shares his wisdom and experience, picking up where we left off in our first podcast conversation, published six years ago to the day (RRP #77).
We discuss his mission to help empower the next generation of doctors to better heal their patients.
And we explore his dream of eradicating the chronic lifestyle epidemics that unnecessarily afflict millions of people every single year.
The most energetic and youthful 72-year old I’ve ever met, I aspire to this beautiful and gentle man’s enthusiasm for life and commitment to service.
Note: Taped in late January, today’s episode is one of 14 relatively evergreen conversations I recorded pre-pandemic. My current intention is maintain the integrity of this podcast by continuing to release such episodes in accordance with my regular schedule. However, I will also be publishing supplemental mid-week episodes to address our current unique situation contemporaneously.
I sincerely hope you enjoy the exchange.
In the meantime, stay safe everyone. We’re in this together.
