Europe’s biggest scientific conference on plant-based nutrition is coming to the UK for the very first time.
VegMed will be held at King’s College London on 12 and 13 October 2019. It will be the sixth edition of VegMed, and the first outside of Germany.
The event will be organised by the ProVeg UK, an international food awareness organisation that aim to tackle world issues through the knowledge of nutrition.
It will be a two-day event, including information for not only the general public, but also medical professionals, including nutritionists, physicists and medical students.
VegMed will include two guest US Physician speakers, Dr Michael Greger and Dr Michael Klapper.
VegMed manager Amy Odene, stated: “It is widely accepted that some of the UK’s biggest killers are preventable with diet and lifestyle, yet only a handful of hours are dedicated to nutritional education in medical professional training here in the UK.
“We’re hosting VegMed to provide a much-needed platform for the latest research and information in plant-based nutrition, which can play a major and still largely underestimated role in preventing and reversing disease, improving overall health and reducing the strain on our increasingly under-pressure NHS.”
The scientific conference will be held on 12 and 13 October 2019 at King’s College, London.
