Q: My completion percentage is not changing for the course. How do I track my progress?

A: After viewing the video recordings and class materials for each lesson, you will need to click the blue “complete and continue” button in order for your progress to be tracked in the course. (Note: this will not prevent you from re-watching “completed” lessons.)

Q: Where can I ask my questions?

A: As part of your registration, you are invited to join the nutritionally-awakened community via Slack, where you can ask your questions and connect with other like minded individuals. The link to join the Slack community is included in the second lesson on the course platform, in the section titled: Join the Plant-Based Health Community! Dr. Klaper will be monitoring Slack, and will respond to questions periodically. It is likely that Dr. Klaper will not be able to answer all questions, and he will not be answering any personal medical questions.

Q: May I ask a personal medical question?

A: Questions about personal medical conditions or specific nutrient requirements are difficult to answer without knowing your complete medical history. We ask that you please refrain from sending these questions, but if you wish to arrange a telemedicine consultation with Dr. Klaper or another experienced plant-based physician to discuss your health issues, please schedule this through: Plantbasedtelehealth.com. 

Q: What is the difference between this Master Class and the plant-based nutrition course offered through the Center for Nutrition Studies? How does it differ from other plant-based nutrition classes?

A: The Master Class in Plant-based Clinical Nutrition builds on much of the basic science presented in the CNS course to give those in the clinical healing arts, especially medical students and practicing physicians new to the concept, a nutritional framework with which to better understand the diseases they are treating. It is intended to be clinician-to-clinician guidance on disease reversal using plant-based nutrition as the foundation. Those with basic science training, including health coaches and people who want to heal from degenerative diseases, would also find the Master Classes of benefit. In terms of comparison, these Master Classes are largely for students and clinicians who want to learn how to use plant-based nutrition in their practices and why it works.

Q: When is the deadline to sign up?

A: There is no deadline to sign up.

Q: Can I purchase individual Master Class sessions?

A: Yes, you can purchase individual Master Class sessions for yourself, or to give as a gift, by visiting doctorklaper.com/mmf-masterclass, and scrolling down to the list of individual classes to select the class you are most interested in.
