    Dr. Fuhrman is absolutely top of his class in every way: as nutritional researcher, author, speaker, and practicing family physician. I am so grateful that Dr. Fuhrman has been our primary keynote speaker at Health, Healing & Happiness events for the last three years, as he always exceeds expectations by delivering his life-saving education in an eloquent, powerful and often humorous way! I am very excited that Dr. Fuhrman will join our events again and cannot wait for the release of his upcoming book, Fast Food Genocide, which promises to be another paradigm shift!

    Having hosted over 2,000 events and booking hundreds of presenters over the years, Dr. Fuhrman was a true pleasure to work with. He took the time to analyze the particular needs of our audience, customize his message and presented his phenomenal content in a humorous and entertaining way. I highly recommended him to anyone considering booking a speaker.
