Dr Rosane Oliveira Events

Rosane Oliveira, DVM, PhD, is Founding Director of Integrative Medicine at the University of California Davis School of Medicine. She has over 20 years of experience as a molecular geneticist and has a special interest in nutritional genetics and genomics, which explore the interplay between diet and genes in the prevention of disease and promotion of health and longevity. She is a native of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and has lived in the US since 2003.

100 and Healthy

Dr. Oliveira explains how a whole food, plant-based diet changes the way genes are turned on and off to promote longevity.  A closer look into the Mediterranean diet reveals why it works. (Hint: It is not the fish, the olive oil, or the wine!)

Stop Blaming Your Genes

Dr. Oliveira will describe how a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains changes the way genes are turned on and off to prevent or reverse obesity. A closer look into twin studies shows that, when it comes to weight and health, daily lifestyle choices matter.
