The three-day event is held for medical professionals and students. Its aim is to give them insights from leading scientists with a view to improving nutrition in the healthcare system.

The first day uncovered the latest findings in plant-based medicine, with a focus on climate change and the emergence of zoonotic diseases. In addition, day two offers discussions and workshops on plant-based diets in hospitals.

Lastly, the conference dives into the ‘lack’ of nutritional education in contemporary medical schools. Participants will be able to take part in Q&A sessions and connect with peers.
