VEGAN Education.

During the spring, we had four interns in the VRG office, including a future vegan engineer, two specializing in environmental studies from Maryland Loyola, and a student who recently completed her bachelor's in health science fitness wellness, with an eye towards a graduate program in public health. They participated with health coach Marcy at a vegan cooking demo for previously homeless individuals, and worked on a meal plan helpful for low-income Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) recipients. Also, this year past interns asked us for recommendations for law school and an RD internship program. Thank you to all our hard-working interns for making a difference. VRG Research Director Jeanne Yacoubou, MS, investigated animal products in toilet paper. VRG conducted our ongoing poll on the number of vegans and vegetarians. See results on pages 24-26. Debra Wasserman was invited to speak at the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics NDEP Eastern Workshop for Dietetic Educators and Preceptors. Marcy Schveibinz updated our VRG's Guide to Soymilks. Excerpts are on pages 11-13. See the entire table at: vrg.org/nutshell/Guide_to_Soymilks_2019.pdf
