VegMed is a unique international scientific conference, bringing whole food, plant-based nutrition into mainstream medicine. VegMed was established in 2012 by Charité Medical University Outpatient Department for Integrative Medicine and ProVeg. In 2020 it is conducted by ProVeg, Charité Medical University Outpatient Department for Integrative Medicine, the Physicians Association for Nutrition (PAN), Reformhaus Fachakademie and our event partner MES (medical event solutions).
VegMed is aimed at physicians, medical students and scientists as well as nutritionists and related disciplines. People in academic healthcare professions are also invited. The third day is open to the general public, for everybody with an interest in learning about plant-based nutrition and health from internationally renowned speakers.
VegMed 2020 will follow three main themes. One focus will be on the core mechanisms of nutrition’s impact on our health, shining a light on metabolism, genetics, epigenetics and microbiome. Another central issue will be the implementation of plant-based approaches in medicine: how are these approaches best integrated in the daily practice of health professionals, which tools and programmes work best for patients and which challenges within (healthcare) politics need to be mastered to multiply and improve the overall options?
As a third principal topic of VegMed 2020 will, of course, be presenting the latest research on nutrition and certain health conditions – this time with an emphasis on neurological and psychiatric diseases. We are looking forward to hosting an event full of lively and thorough discussion as well as gaining invaluable information and skills to take home.
