More About the Author
Dr. Pam Popper is a naturopath, an internationally recognized expert on nutrition and health, and the Executive Director of The Wellness Forum. The company offers educational programs designed to assist individuals in changing their health outcomes through improved diet and lifestyle habits; to assist employers in reducing the costs of health insurance and medical care for employees; and to educate health care professionals about how to use diet and lifestyle for preventing, reversing, and stopping the progression of degenerative disease.
Dr. Popper is the author of several books; her most recent is solving America's Healthcare Crisis. She is the Founder of The Wellness Forum Foundation, which offers programming in schools designed to improve children's health through better nutrition.
Dr. Popper serves on the Physician's Steering Committee for the Physicians' Committee for Responsible Medicine in Washington D.C.. Dr. Popper works with Whole Foods, one of the largest natural foods grocers in the world, as part of Rip Esslestyn's team, charged with helping employees improve their health with plant-based nutrition and better lifestyle choices. Additionally, she is part of Dr. T. Colin Campbell's teaching team at eCornell, teaching part of a certification course on plant-based nutrition. She has been featured in many widely distributed documentaries, including Processed People and Making a Killing and appears in a new film, Forks Over Knives, which opened in major theaters in May 2011.
Dr. Popper is also a lobbyist and public policy expert, and continually works toward changing laws that interfere with patients' right to choose their health provider and method of care. She has testified in front of legislative committees on numerous occasions, and has testified twice in front of the USDA's Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee.
Dr. Pam Popper is a straight-talking professional who is not afraid to criticize national health organizations, government agencies, medical professionals, pharmaceutical companies, agricultural organizations and manufacturing companies, many of whom have agendas and priorities that interfere with distributing truthful information and promoting public health.
Everyone who is interested in health should hear her speak. For some, their lives may depend on what she has to say!

Within our society, our community, our families and most commonly within ourselves, we have a growing health crisis brewing, perpetuated by our daily habits and cultural norms, yet simply not confronted. We are suffering and dying of chronic conditions and diseases at an unprecedented rate, in spite of spending more on heath care than ever before. Our established way of life is killing us, yet we are not addressing the underlying problem. It's just so large, invasive and complex that we can't seem to take hold and attack it with any meaningful success.
Yet this health crisis does not have to be. We understand enough about human health, what disrupts it, and how to regain it, to fix this monumental problem, but the knowledge is not trickling down. Most Americans are clueless to the far-reaching effects of their dietary patterns and healthcare decisions, and therefore continue on the same downward path towards suffering, disease and dependency on treatments and drugs addressing symptoms of diseases, not underlying causes.
We need a new approach to health care. We need a visionary - someone to articulate and set forth a clear path to solve our healthcare crisis in this country, and this is just what Dr. Pamela Popper is, and attempts, her book, SOLVING AMERICA'S HEALTHCARE CRISIS. It offers us nothing less than a comprehensive war plan that lays out what we must do to make significant changes to reverse the financial and health effects of our current practices. Dr. Popper clearly explains the problem, issue by issue, and offers us an achievable solution to follow. The problem, she explains, is the result of our poor diet and lifestyle habits.Read more ›
