In July and August 2020, we hosted Holistic Holiday at Home, a virtual wellness event that featured the biggest movers and shakers in the plant-based world. The 7-day virtual event was the first of its kind and offered the chance to learn, connect, and feel inspired without ever leaving home! Over 54,000 people attended the online, week-long summit born from a need to connect through the pandemic. We’re highlighting a few life-saving seminars led by the brightest vegan doctors to celebrate our year anniversary.
