The McDougall 3-Day Advanced Study Weekend in Santa Rosa, California
weekends are held twice a year and are dedicated to broadening the
understanding of plant-food based nutrition and conservative medical
care. New opinions and research are presented to our sophisticated
audiences. Even though we call them "advanced study," these educational
events are designed for the benefit and enjoyment of those just
beginning on the road to better health, as well as medical and nutrition
professionals. Nor are participants expected to have attended a
10-day program before coming.
Introduction to the McDougall Advanced Study Weekends
Expert guests have included Dean Ornish, MD, Neal Barnard, MD, Henry
Heimlich, MD, and Howard Lyman.
The delicious foods served during the weekend dispel a common myth that
healthy foods are not satisfying or delicious. Attendees enjoy
all-you-can-eat buffet tables filled with Italian Lasagna, Mexican
Enchiladas and Burritos, Thai Noodles, Shepherd's Pie, salads and
There is no medical care offered during this weekend unless you are
already an established patient of Dr.
McDougall's. In that case follow-up visits can be arranged. For an extra
charge, basic blood tests (cholesterol, triglycerides, blood sugar, and
thyroid function) can be done during this program.
Cost for the 3-day weekend, including meals and education (excluding
room), is $615 per person. Discounted room rates have been arranged.
Payments for this program are fully refundable until one week prior
to the beginning date. Please refer any questions to
