Speaking and Events
Dr. Ede speaks internationally on a wide variety of nutrition science topics, including ketogenic diets for psychiatric disorders, Alzheimer’s prevention, nutrition policy, and the nutritional differences between plant and animal foods. Engaging graphics, clear explanations and humor make her presentations accessible to audiences of all kinds.
“I love speaking at all kinds of events to all kinds of people. My goal is not to impress or overwhelm people with lots of technical information—my job as a speaker is to engage, educate and empower every single person in the room.”
—Georgia Ede MD

I asked Dr. Georgia Ede to create two lectures for my CME-certified 1st International Keto Live Conference in Switzerland in June 2019. The audience just loved Dr. Ede and her lectures, not only because of their sound medical and scientific content but also because of their intelligent and sometimes humorously entertaining slides which brilliantly illustrated her speech and accompanied Dr. Ede’s charming personality on stage. Immediately after she finished her presentations I invited her again for the following year’s conference. You don't have to look further—you found the best!"
—Josephine Barbarino, Founder, KetoLive Project
“This workshop provided much valuable information for mental health professionals to share and use with clients. The added bonus was that the information was so pertinent to our own lives and self-care and the care of our families. Despite the 'scientific' nature of some of the presentation, all was easy to understand. You have a nice way of making the difficult into something manageable—rave reviews—not a single negative evaluation.”
—Pat Hartman, Coordinator of Professional Development, National Association of Social Workers, Connecticut Chapter
“Your First Wednesday talk here at the Greenfield Public Library was so well received. . . . Patrons who were here for the talk have raved about it, and those who missed it have inundated us with requests to have you here again.”
—Lisa Prolman, Assistant Library Director, Greenfield Public Library, Greenfield MA
