VegMed 2019: The Power of Plant is a two-day conference that will be held at King’s College London on 12 and 13 October 2019.

Day one is for the medical profession: physicians, scientists, medical students, and nutritionists and those in related fields. Day two is for the general public

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.

Dr Michael Klaper, who has been featured in several award-winning films focused on health and sustainable living, will also be speaking. 

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.
