In partnership with The STRAND Dover, New Hampshire Animal Rights League Presents: “The Game Changers” with Introduction and Post-Film Q&A by Fitness and Nutrition Educator Jennifer Burzycki
Come watch the critically-acclaimed film The Game Changers on the big screen and get answers to all your questions about protein, strength, and plant-based eating from athlete and nutritionist Jennifer Burzycki.
Directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Louie Psihoyos and executive produced by James Cameron, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jackie Chan, Lewis Hamilton, Novak Djokovic, and Chris Paul, The Game Changers tells the story of James Wilks — elite Special Forces trainer and The Ultimate Fighter winner — as he travels the world on a quest to uncover the optimal diet for human performance. What James discovers radically changes his understanding of food and his definition of true strength.
Introducing the film will be Jennifer Burzycki, a plant-based athlete and nutrition educator who embarked on her own quest for the optimal diet after being diagnosed with cancer at age 33. Jennifer made it her mission to eat for survival, and what she learned along the way turned her old ideas about nutrition upside down. Now cancer free and stronger than ever, she shares with others what she has learned about the power of fitness and a plant-based diet. (Scroll down to read Jennifer’s complete biography.)

About Jennifer Burzycki
Jennifer Burzycki is certified in plant-based nutrition through the T. Colin Campbell Foundation and is a regular presenter at the NH VegFest—delivering popular lectures including, ‘Is Being Vegan Enough?’ and ‘Plant Powered Performance.’ She is also an avid runner and scuba diver and has assisted athletes in accomplishing their fitness goals through proper nutrition.
Jennifer has always had a keen interest in science, but it wasn’t until her own breast cancer diagnosis at the age of 33 that she explored the scientific connection between lifestyle factors and chronic disease. The search to recover and improve her body’s performance while reducing her risk for further chronic disease led her to adopt a Whole Food, Plant-Based (WFPB) lifestyle shortly thereafter.
As an educator at the NH State Prison for Men and the NH Correctional Facility for Women, for nearly 14 years she has been instructing her students in science and nutrition. Jennifer received a B.S. in Biotechnology from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and an M. Ed. from Rivier University.
She enjoys familiarizing others about the link between diet and chronic disease and their ability to influence their health destiny. She encourages individuals seeking to shift to a more WFPB lifestyle by providing manageable strategies to ensure adequate nutrition is achieved while addressing real and perceived barriers that can hinder their progress.
Jennifer stresses that regardless of the condition you may find yourself, it is never too late to reap the benefits of an improved lifestyle.
