Program Description

This continuing medical education (CME) activity provides clinicians with a concise overview and important take-home messages of selected presentations from the Advances in Neonatal and Pediatric Nutrition 2017 Conference. The live conference, accredited and hosted by the University of California San Diego, School of Medicine, brought together pediatric clinicians to learn about various topics relating to pediatric nutrition. This report aims to improve clinicians’ knowledge, competence, and performance related to: nutrition and brain development; optimal approaches to monitoring infant growth; the application of human milk science to formulas; improving vitamin D supplementation; management of food allergies; the gut microbiome; malnutrition in the NICU; preterm infant feeding and door milk; and the psychology of overeating.

  • Counsel patients and parents of young children about optimal nutrition, including the role of key micronutrients as well as prebiotics and probiotics
