January 2020 Meeting

Program Meeting - January 2020

Wednesday, January 15th at 18:30

Our speaker for January is Dr. Dorit Maoz, who will talk about her work with Doctors Without Borders. Dr. Maoz is a general practitioner in Untermenzing whose areas of specialization include diabetology, travel medicine and pain therapy. She studied medicine in Heidelberg from 1992 to 1998. Working subsequently in various capacities in Bavaria as well as Scotland, Dr. Maoz gained expertise in areas ranging from emergency medicine, internal medicine and pediatrics to surgery and pain therapy. Certified as a general practitioner in 2005, she went on to obtain additional qualifications in pain therapy and diabetology before earning a master’s degree in International Health from the University of Basel in 2016. Dr. Maoz first became involved with Doctors Without Borders in 2005. To date, she has taken part in seven missions — in countries including Nigeria, Kashmir/Pakistan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Chad and the Ivory Coast. The missions have addressed major health issues such as children’s nutrition, cholera, HIV/Aids and ebola. In sharing some of her experiences and insights with us, Dr. Maoz will focus on two of the missions she has participated in.

Many thanks again to Dr. Dorit Maoz from Doctors without Borders for her very interesting and insightful presentation. She told us about her various missions, particularly her first one to Nigeria to combat malnutrition, about the disease itself and about the internal workings of the organization.
Thank you Dona Schlimm for organizing everything and to Pat Biondo who originally suggested the idea.
If you have an idea for a program meeting, please don't hesitate to contact the Program Committee and let them know.

November 2019 Meeting

Program Meeting - November 2019

Wednesday, November 20th  at 18:30

We are looking forward to hearing from Ursula Heinz, who will be speaking to give us a basic understanding of the evidence and the benefits of a whole-food plant-based lifestyle. Ursula grew up in Vienna and graduated from medical and dental school in Vienna. She has been practicing orthodontics, following a residency in San Diego, California. She has also spent the last eight years focusing on healthy nutrition, a healthy gut and a sustainable lifestyle. In the past decade, she and her family have lived in Louisiana and in Queensland, Australia, and they have just recently relocated to Munich. Being a physician, it was always my intention to help other people switch to a healthy lifestyle. A few years ago, I started the blog http://www.plantbasedhappy.com and http://www.plantbasedhappykids.com, and have published the book "Stella's Whole Food Plant-Based Family Cookbook", which will be available next year in Germany through the GU Verlag. Last year Ursula successfully launched the company http://www.activatedme.de producing activated nuts and seeds. She also gives lifestyle change workshops in Munich (www.plantbasedhappy.de).
