One incredible Summit – no matter where you're at.
Dr. T. Colin Campbell is the Jacob Gould Schurman Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry at Cornell University, project director of the acclaimed China-Oxford-Cornell Diet and Health Project, coauthor of The China Study, and author of Whole: Rethinking the Science of Nutrition.
The answer to the American health crisis is the food that each of us chooses to put in our mouths each day. It’s as simple as that.
Born and raised in Newfoundland, Dr. W. Shane Williams attended Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN) in St. John’s where he obtained his Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy [BSc (Pharm)] being selected as class valedictorian in 1995. He then completed his 4 year Doctor of Medicine (MD) and 3 year post-graduate fellowship program in Internal Medicine at Memorial. He went on to complete a 3 year Cardiology Subspecialty Fellowship at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario and in 2008 moved to Muskoka, Ontario to open his private practice in Cardiology and Internal Medicine.
In 2010, he stumbled across a copy of the book ‘The China Study’ written by Dr. T. Colin and Tom Campbell and was surprised with the amount of nutritional research that existed to support a whole foods plant-based diet -- to not only prevent but also stabilize, improve and sometimes even reverse many chronic conditions including elevated blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, coronary heart disease and diabetes.
He began to learn more about the science showing the power of nutrition on health. Since 2010, after changing his diet and enjoying many health benefits, he’s been incorporating nutritional education and training into the care of his clinic patients.
Dr. Williams has recently expanded his treatment option to include an in residence facility which will powerfully enable patients to achieve important lifestyle changes. He is also developing an online program which will reach out to the rest of Canada defining how they may optimize their benefits.
It has been my privilege to know Dr. Williams as a friend and colleague and admire his growing commitment to enhance the well being of all Canadians.
