Speakers will include Dr Michael Greger, founder of NutritionFacts.org and acclaimed author of ‘How Not to Die’, internationally renowned nutritionist Brenda Davis, Dr Neal Barnard - President of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.

ProVeg UK executive director Philip Mansbridge said: "VegMed provides a much-needed platform to address an imbalance within the medical profession.
"It is well documented that diet and lifestyle play a large role in preventing many of the UK’s biggest killers, yet only a handful of hours are dedicated to nutrition education for medical professionals here in the UK."
VegMed was founded in 2012 by ProVeg International and Charité University Clinic for Naturopathy at Immanuel Hospital Berlin.
