The Royal European Academy of Doctors-Barcelona 1914 (RAED) and the Spanish Academy of Nutrition and Food Sciences, which is chaired by the full academician of the RAED Lluís Serra and whose vice-president is fellow academician Javier Aranceta, have reached an institutional collaboration agreement that will allow them to develop common projects and participate in a preferred way in the activities carried out by any of the two academic institutions. A collaboration that has already materialized in the Annual Scientific Session that the Academy held this Wednesday, October 24, within the framework of the Nutrimad 2018 International Congress. The Spanish Royal Academy of Medicine has also participated in the events. Its president, Joaquín Poch, co-chaired the session with Serra.

During the acts, the Spanish Academy of Nutrition and Food Sciences welcomed as honorary member Manuel Serrano, professor of Internal Medicine at the Complutense University of Madrid and academician of the Royal Academy of Medicine.
