The GORS vs. GORR Lecture Series
The Disease of Aging and Medical Nutrition: Food over Medicine

Presented by:
Barbara A. Doherty, RN, MS, BSN, PAHM, LNC, CCM, CHC

What does the term GORS vs. GORRS mean? It means “Getting Old Really Sucks or Getting Old Really Rocks!” I prefer the latter.

The Goal of the Medical Nutrition Lecture Series is to provide my audience with the most common, diet-induced medical conditions, both physically and financially crippling, that can be prevented or reversed – through diet. Many medical conditions often develop or are exacerbated by an improper or unhealthy diet. Why are the diseases of aging so tragic? Because most are preventable!! The disease of aging lecture series consists of five lectures that includes a healthy food/wine tastings and handouts related to these diseases, nutrition, and exercise.

As a registered nurse clinician by profession, I have more than 40 years of clinical and health care experience, and many years of nutrition education. I am a graduate of the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York with a Masters Degree in Applied Clinical Nutrition from Northeastern University in Boston. I am also a Certified Health Coach.

How you age is up to you! Attend my lectures and learn what you can do to prevent or reverse the crippling diseases of aging.
