Nelson Campbell

Back to Presenters

Nelson Campbell is the Executive Producer, Director and Co-Writer of PlantPure Nation, a film which examines the political and economic factors that suppress information on the benefits of plant-based nutrition, while making the connections of this idea to larger issues such as medical practice, farming and food deserts. He also leads a company that he established to create a financial mechanism for supporting a grassroots movement around the health message of plant-based nutrition. Prior to this, he had 25 years of entrepreneurial experience building various companies. Nelson has undergraduate and graduate degrees from Cornell University in political science and economics.

Lectures for the 2017 Cruise

Lecture: New Approach to Health Care... and Social Change
We often fixate on the particular failings of a system rather than understanding the paradigm upon which it is based. In healthcare, people have argued over how to deliver care and pay its costs, rather than seeing the system’s roots in a failed pharmaceutical paradigm. Seeing paradigms enables transformative solutions, like the solution offered by whole food, plant-based nutrition. The reductionist view that impedes solutions in healthcare also prevents larger political change. Many Americans are fed up with a political system that seems to serve mostly the rich and powerful.

Nelson Campbell will discuss the efforts of his organization to launch a grassroots movement, but one that goes beyond healthcare. He will tell a story that begins with nutrition, then veers into philosophy and politics and ends with a vision for broad-based political and social change.
