The Future of Food and Healthcare
28 February–2 March 2021
VegMed is a unique congress for healthcare professionals that goes beyond the standard medical conference. While being highly scientific with its line-up of renowned physicians and academics, it addresses the current challenges of the healthcare system from a more holistic perspective, taking into account not only the latest findings in evidence-based nutrition and health but also highlighting the link between nutrition, pandemics, and planetary health. Crucially, VegMed’s key goal is to offer practical advice that physicians, dieticians, nutritional scientists, students, and other healthcare professionals can use in their daily practices to help their patients improve their diets and, thereby, their health. Taking place as an online conference in 2021, VegMed Web will be a highly interactive and engaging platform, and will also enable attendees to expand their international network.
All talks will be recorded and will be available on-demand for registered participants until 2 months after the event.
Program topics include:
Plant-based nutrition in the prevention and treatment of diseases
Food, climate change and health
Food choices as drivers of zoonotic diseases
Vegan nutrition in childhood
Nutrition in medical education
Public Health Nutrition – how to support political implementation
The conference language is English. Translations into German by a live interpreter will be available for stream A.
