VegMed

VegMed is Europe’s largest medical congress on plant-based nutrition. It’s a project of a non-profit consortium comprising the Physicians Association for Nutrition (PAN), Charité University Berlin, Immanuel Hospital Berlin, ProVeg International, and Stiftung Reformhaus Fachakademie.

“VegMed Web 2021” was the first 100% digital edition of the conference which took place between 28 February and 2 March 2021. This digital format allowed for a truly international and interactive online gathering of hundreds of health professionals from around the globe. Throughout the full 3-day program, they shared knowledge about the latest science on plant-based nutrition as well as hands-on tools for daily medical practice.

A selection of recordings from some of the key talks at the conference is available for PAN members to rewatch or enjoy for the first time. Visit our webinar recordings page for more information.
