"The EDD Heath Summits have been two of the most informative and well-planned plant-based educational health conferences targeted to the Black community I've had the honor and privilege of participating in. I have always come away from Dawn's programs having learned from the other expert presenters and also with an expanded network of colleagues and contacts. Dawn's EDD Summits are "must attend" events and I hope they will expand to cover a full weekend in the future!"
MILTON MILLS, MD
"It’s one thing to tell people to adopt a more plant based diet. But helping individuals to understand the why from a clinical perspective and the how from a culinary perspective is both motivating and empowering. Dawn gives individuals the knowledge and skills to take ownership of their health!"
BETH MOTLEY, MD
"I believe in the Herban Eats movement because education is key to making informed decisions that will support better wellness and health outcomes."
THE HONORABLE CHANDRA DILLARD, SC HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
"I had the opportunity to meet Dawn in 2019 at a plant-based conference and it was very evident that she embodies her brand mission of radicalizing wellness through vegucation and flava. One great example of Dawn's passion was exemplified during the COVID-19 pandemic; she didn't complain about the food injustice experienced by the communities disproportionately impacted by chronic disease. Dawn and the team put feet on the street to provide the communities with vegucational resources, healthy plant-based non-perishable foods and prepared flava-ful food. Dawn's act of advocacy brings a new meaning to the quote, "to be truly radical is to make hope possible rather than despair convincing."
