Organization Summary

Founded in 2018, the Physicians Association for Nutrition (PAN) is an international NGO based in Munich, Germany.

PAN International recognizes the preventive and therapeutic potential that lies within whole food, plant-based (WFPB) nutrition when it comes to addressing the world’s leading causes of death, quality of life issues, and healthy life years lost.

PAN aims to raise awareness among health professionals, the general public, and policymakers about the role of WFPB nutrition in promoting good health and preventing and treating disease.

PAN strives to:

  • make nutrition education a key part of medical school and the training of all health professions,
  • empower health professionals and students by providing educational seminars and training,
  • create effective nutrition programs and resources to optimally support patients and consumers,
  • change hospital menus to include more nutritionally sound options,
  • build a global network of health professionals, scientists, and students, and
  • create influential medical lobbies in countries with established PAN branches to promote policy change and bring nutrition to the heart of healthcare systems and communities.

We deliver evidence-based nutrition and health information, reevaluating our content regularly in accordance with the newest available and most thoroughly researched findings while recognizing — and addressing — the opportunities and limitations of particular research results and established scientific methods. We appreciate, welcome, and foster scientific exchange and discussion.
