PlantPure Communities (PPC) has announced that Dr. Tedd Weisman of Connecticut Orthopaedic Specialists (COS) has been named to their Board of Advisors.
Dr. Weisman is a board certified orthopedic surgeon and physician-partner at COS. He is an advocate of whole-food plant-based nutrition and his goal is to impart information about the important connection between scientifically-based whole food plant-based nutrition and bone (and overall) health.
“More than ever in my career, I see this as calling, to become an educator about health – and was honored when given this unique opportunity to join the Board of Advisors of PPC,” said Dr. Weisman.
“I believe that the most important way to improve societal health, and decrease reliance on drugs, and yes, surgery, is through grassroots nutritional education.”
Dr. Weisman is Chairman of the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at Milford Hospital, in Milford, CT, and has held that position since 2005. He also served a two-year term as President of the Milford Hospital Medical Staff (2008-2010).
