More than 10 years ago, this doctor of health sciences designed the Coronary Health Improvement Project (CHIP), intended to help communities improve their collective health by switching to low-fat, low-sugar, low-salt, cholesterol-free, high-fibre diets.

Each individual project is started in a chosen community, where anywhere from 500 to 3,000 people are recruited for a 40-hour educational program that teaches how such a diet can reverse heart disease and adult-onset diabetes, lower high blood pressure, promote weight loss and counteract depression.

After running dozens of these programs, the 52-year-old author of Health Power (Review & Herald Publishing, 2001) has established a CHIP National Centre in Rockford which sets up projects within a town's schools, hospitals, corporations and churches.

He has also been working with restaurants, grocery stores and doctors in those same communities to make sure healthy meals are available to participants and that the program is supported. The goal is to get other communities to follow suit and set up their own health improvement projects.
