WE WERE AT VEGMED 2018   20. – 22. APRIL 2018, BERLIN


The Physicians Association for Nutrition (PAN) International aims to raise awareness
among health professionals, the general public and policymakers about the role of nutrition
in promoting good health and preventing and treating disease, while also providing tools for making positive dietary changes.

Serving as a global umbrella organization, PAN International will encourage
the growth of national PAN branches in countries around the world. PAN International
has launched in April 2018.




PAN International creates synergies with existing like-minded initiatives, as well as medical
and nutrition experts worldwide, to provide national PAN branches with scientific content
and relevant resources, as well as technical, organizational and strategic support.


Planned activities include:


  • Developing articles, fact sheets, graphics and videos about evidence-based methods
    of using nutrition to prevent disease and promote health
  • Creating digital health apps to facilitate and encourage dietary change
  • Providing seminars and lectures with actionable content that is tailored to health professionals, medical students, patients, and the general public
  • Providing a platform for scientific discussion, including regular conferences
  • Supporting and designing new research studies
  • Encouraging policymakers and food industries to enable widespread access to healthy foods

 contributors to the overall burden of diet

            are low fruit, high sodium, low whole grains,

        low vegetables, and low nuts and seeds."
