He will run for the WLSFA at our race at Disney world the Disney Wine and Dine 1/2 Marathon November 4th in Orlando Florida. As part of our main stage speakers series, Dr. Garth Davis and his lovely wife Kelly will talk about his new book with a working title of Walking the Talk due out also in May of 2013! the book is about how Dr. Garth along with his Wife Kelly and family found their health, living a plant based life and it talks about what he did not learn in medical school. Together they will demonstrate simple and delicious dishes with the assistance of some lucky audience members. As a Bariatric Surgeon and Athlete, Dr. Davis will correlate this information to the special needs of WLS patients.
All three speakers are invested in helping people who are effected by obesity. Each one brings a unique perspective that will benefit and inspire our attendees. With Carnie’s help raising awareness for the WLSFA and our Mission to fund grants for weight loss and reconstructive surgery, the sky is the limit.
