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.
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,”
