- Dr. Grace Chen will discuss common Emergency Room visits. Some common complaints include abdominal pain, headaches, chest pain, fractures, infections, shortness of breath, and headaches. Unfortunately, many medications we prescribe for diseases have untoward side effects, resulting in even more emergency department visits. Many complaints can be ameliorated or completely eliminated by avoiding consumption of animal products. By eating a plant-based diet, people can avoid medication side effects and chronic disease and live a long healthy life.
Grace Chen, MD, is a board certified emergency physician who practices at Kuakini Medical Center in Honolulu. She grew up in New Jersey and obtained her undergraduate degree at Dartmouth College before returning to attend New Jersey Medical School in Newark. She completed her residency in New York before moving to California where she practiced for eight years. She always loved visiting Hawaii, and last year she decided to make Hawaii her home.
Dr. Chen has been a vegetarian for over 20 years and became a vegan five years ago. She is passionate about leading a healthy lifestyle that includes avoiding animal products and practicing yoga. She is a strong advocate of preventing chronic disease through diet and lifestyle changes.
