VRG outreach.

Vegetarian Resource Group Nutrition Advisor Reed Mangels, PhD, RD, wrote the "Vegan Nutrition in Pregnancy and Childhood" information that the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) uses on its website. Their "General Educational Materials" page begins at <http://wicworks.nal.usda.gov/ pregnancy/general-educational-materials?page=1>.

In addition, Reed has been talking about pregnancy on The Dr. Don Show, a weekday broadcast on KZZZ 1490 AM. The show was created to help educate the listening audience about important health issues, with emphasis on lifestyle changes and dietary intervention. The host, Dr. Don Wagner, is a doctor of osteopathic medicine who is board-certified in emergency medicine and family practice, and he is course-certified in lifestyle medicine and plant-based nutrition.
