About Us

While there may be relatively few physicians who fully appreciate a plant-based diet, there does appear to be more and more who have become convinced of its viability. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has a position page on these diets. The mainstream media is also covering this ethical way of eating more often (ex. CNN). VegDocs is an attempt to help those eating a vegan (or vegetarian) diet in finding a physician who is knowledgeable, or at least sympathetic, to this ethical endeavor.

The idea for VegDocs developed out of the certificate program at the Institute for Humane Education. VegDocs is one such project.

It is hoped this website will continue to expand and assist more and more vegans and vegetarians find a physician.
