Course presentation

The number of people following a vegetarian diet is increasing, as are medical consultations and dietitians-nutritionists. On the one hand, the degree training in this subject in most health careers is clearly insufficient to rigorously and ethically meet the demands and needs of this group. On the other hand, information related to vegetarianism that is controversial, alarmist and often little supported by scientific evidence often appears in the media and on social media. This can lead to concern and concern among health professionals, which needs to be addressed with up-to-date training in vegetarian food and nutrition.
