Dear members of the Press,

Thank you for your interest in the 6th International Congress on Vegetarian Nutrition. As in previous years, no doubt this event will present the best of the best research in vegetarian diets, and raise some provocative ideas.

We invite you to take part in the congress all three days, February 24-26, and attend the special events we have planned beginning Saturday, February 23rd.
