Vegetarian Nutiriton 

Professional interest in vegetarian nutrition has now reached unprecedented levels; however, scientific knowledge regarding vegetarian diets and their effects on human health is far from complete. The International Congress on Vegetarian Nutrition is designed to provide a review of the accumulated findings, and introduce theoretical concepts, practical applications, and implications of vegetarian dietary practices for both the prevention of disease and the promotion of health, as well as for the furthering of research endeavors.

The theme for the 7th Congress is Plant-foods for the health of people, populations and the planet.  

Call for abstracts

Deadline: October 1, 2017.

The Congress is now accepting abstracts for oral and poster presentations that fit the theme of the congress: plant-foods for the health of people, populations and the planet. More details about abstracts forthcoming.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Loma Linda University campus for the 7th International Congress on Vegetarian Nutrition in February of 2018! For any questions or updates on the congress, email ICVN@llu.edu.
