Sedona Health and Nutrition Conference

Just A Few Words . . .

About Sedona Health and Nutrition Conference

Sedona Health and Nutrition Conference was forced to go on hiatus after our 2020 event because of Covid-19 pandemic concerns. Given the lead times required for planning and the continuing uncertainties about the viability of large events, we’ve decided that this pause must continue through 2022. We hope to return when it is clearly prudent to do so. 

Until then, we hope you are keeping safe and well. Your health is part of our mission, after all! While waiting for the Health and Nutrition Conference to return, please visit us online at to keep in touch and stay current on plant-based news. And visit to learn about our exciting new program for small group support virtually and in person!

Discover how plant-based nutrition is changing the landscape of medical practice in the U.S. Beginning in 2017, this unique conference has been presented in four consecutive years and is the first in Northern Arizona to present the latest information on the science and practice of “food as medicine”—medicine that goes beyond managing chronic conditions to promote true healing. Learn the latest information on plant-based nutrition, the effects of diet on chronic disease prevention and control, and how to design an optimum plant-based diet for patients and clients in a clinical setting.

Interest in plant-based diets is rapidly growing. Practitioners are now successfully using this interest and information in a clinical setting to change the lives of their patients.

This conference, designed for healthcare professionals, offers AMA PRA Category 1 Credits for many medical professionals, and CPEUs from the Commission on Dietetic Registration for registered dietitians. Others with interest in nutrition are welcome to attend.

A Few Words About Your Host . . .

Healthy World Sedona

Healthy World Sedona (HWS) was founded as an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit by Don Fries and Bev Bow in 2016 for the purpose of educating and inspiring the public to adopt a whole food, plant-based lifestyle for personal health, to eliminate unnecessary suffering and death of animals raised for food, and to reduce global warming and other environmental effects caused by animal agriculture. HWS serves primarily Sedona and the Verde Valley in northern Arizona, but has attracted attendees to Sedona Health and Nutrition Conference from across the U.S. and internationally as far as South Korea. To learn more about the mission and many activities of HWS, please visit And if you approve of our mission and are able to help support it, donations are very much appreciated and  always go entirely toward the HWS programs.
