We begin today's show with another Glimmers of Hope segment where Hope shares some good news stories for animals from around the world. Then we are joined by Dr. Leila Dehghan, who is a medical doctor turned vegan nutritionist. Leila has completed a Plant Based Nutrition Certification Program and obtained a Master’s degree in Science in Clinical and Public Health Nutrition. Her focus is finding effective ways to address racial and socio-economic issues that affect health. Her project "Athletes, Food & Diversity" seeks to introduce a plant based diet to people of color. Leila talks to Hope about the negative effects of racism on health, the importance of creating inclusive content in the vegan movement, and veganism as a social justice issue.
