Health and Wellness

Below is a list of health and wellness practitioners in our area whom our members report to be vegan-friendly. (Meaning, they understand the value of vegan diets in preserving health and preventing disease.) Some are also vegan themselves.

We provide this list as a community service, but can’t promise that any of those listed will be a good fit for you. Please use it as a starting point for doing your own research. (Also, if you know someone else who should be on it, please email.)
