Physicians Committee welcome bill to guarantee plant-based meals in New York hospitals

The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine has welcomed the decision of the New York State Senate who passed a bill that would guarantee hospital patients a plant-based option at every meal.

The Assembly is expected to vote on the bill in the coming days.

The Physicians Committee is a nonprofit with more than 12,000 doctor members.

They welcomed the bill, S1471 / A4072, which was introduced by Senator Brad Hoylman and Assembly Member Richard Gottfried.

Susan Levin, MS, RD, director of nutrition education for the Physicians Committee said:

“The New York Senate’s passage of S1471 is an important step that could soon help hospital patients across the state understand the power of a plant-based diet to fight obesity, diabetes, and heart disease,”
