In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk with Eric Adams, Brooklyn Borough President and author of the book Healthy At Last. Eric shares how after years of watching his mom suffer from type 2 diabetes he too was headed down that path and what he did was not LIVE with it, but REVERSE it. He has made amazing progress with schools and hospitals adopting more plant-based and healthy options. He also shares why it’s so important for communities to start changing the quality of black culture foods and how to do that. Please share this episode with any politician or leader in your community as Eric has an important message for them as well.
Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams was born in Brownsville and raised in South Jamaica–one of six children raised by a single mom who cleaned houses. As a young man, Eric faced homelessness, hunger and brutality at the hands of police. But instead of giving into anger, Eric joined the NYPD and fought for reform in the department. He also put himself through school, earning undergraduate and graduate degrees. From the NYPD, he was elected to the State Senate, where he pushed through measures to protect tenants and workers, and advance human rights. As Brooklyn’s first Black Borough President, he has worked tirelessly to grow the local economy, reduce inequality, improve public safety, and advocate for better government.
