Vegan Dietitian Presenting at Sold-Out TED Conference

Julieanna Hever will discuss the personal and global impact of veganism at a sold-out conference.

Today, author and VN columnist Julieanna Hever, better known as the Plant-Based Dietitian, is bringing her dietary expertise to the sold-out TEDxConejo conference, taking place in Thousand Oaks, CA. The nonprofit TED (which stands for technology, entertainment, and design) was launched in 1984 as a triannual global conference aimed at disseminating cutting-edge ideas through short presentations—all talks must be 18 minutes or shorter. The conference has since grown to include TED Talks, its popular multimedia component, and TEDx—independently organized conferences designed to evoke the spirit of TED at the local level. Hever’s talk, scheduled for 4:35pm, will focus on the transformative power of veganism and will be broadcast online on the TEDxConejo website.
