  • 5:30 pm – diabetes screening and book signing opportunity

Dr. Youngberg will present the latest scientific information on re-engineering one’s genetic health risk. All people carry at least some genes associated with diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, auto-immune disease, depression or heart disease. New studies have shown how one can throw the switch and turn disease-promoting genes off and health-promoting gens on. Dr. Youngberg presents a spirited challenge with practical solutions on how to have a major impact on health through everyday choices.

He trained at Loma Linda University, where he serves as assistant clinical professor for the Department of Preventive Medicine at the School of Medicine. He has over 20 years of experience using integrative therapies for diabetes control, depression, depression recovery, cardiovascular disease reversal, optimizing digestive health and effective management of many chronic health conditions. He is founding director and fellow of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine. His new book “Goodbye Diabetes” is dedicated to all who are willing to do what it takes to reverse disease.
