We are pleased to announce that Dr. Stephen Rivard has accepted our invitation to be featured as a keynote speaker at the Farms, Food & Health Conference, September 26–29, Traverse City. Dr. Rivard began his career as an emergency medicine physician, and after three decades in medicine, began diversifying his investments to focus on health and organic farmland. His interest in organic farming goes beyond profit. It also includes the mission of creating a more socially conscious and sustainable future for his children. Dr. Rivard is now bringing attention to the varied illnesses associated with our current food production system. Specifically, he is concerned about the growth of Type 2 diabetes, food allergies and various cancer incidences that may be associated with our food choices and the way we grow our food.
You began as an emergency room physician, then you ended up helping farmers convert to organic agriculture. Describe your journey.
