About PAN The Netherlands
Physicians Association for Nutrition the Netherlands (PAN The Netherlands) was established in 2020 as part of the PAN International network. Similarly to the other branches, our goal is to increase awareness about the power of healthy (evidence-based) nutrition. We believe health professionals are often unaware and undereducated about the effect of healthy nutrition on disease prevention. As a result, healthy nutrition is not a standard part of health care in the Netherlands.
By increasing and thus applying this knowledge we can save many healthy life years. Our association aims to do so by educating students and healthcare professionals, providing evidence-based information for the general public and patients and expanding our (inter)national network.
We have around 50 branch members, and an active support group on Facebook of 120 health professionals. Visit our website (in Dutch) for more information about how you can get involved in the PAN The Netherlands community.
