Welcome to CNM DPG!

What a remarkable year for the CNM DPG! It has been a true pleasure to work with the CNM DPG Executive Committee and members!  We persist in our initiatives to influence and change healthcare through our nutrition leadership and to continue our platform to empower and support our members to advance nutrition practices. Thank you so very much for supporting our DPG this year!

We just completed our CNM Annual Symposium, Strategic Communications: Leading Change to Advance Nutrition Practice, May 2-4, 2019, in Atlanta.  In-coming Chair, Wendy Phillips and the Professional Development committee created an exciting program with plenty of networking opportunities and exhibitors. Learning will be shared in future editions of our Nutrition Dimensions newsletter. If you have not attended a Symposium, please plan to next year, when it will be in held March 19-21, 2020 in Portland, Oregon! Our annual Symposium is a wonderful opportunity to learn, network and reenergize to tackle clinical nutrition management issues and for professional growth.

We also want to encourage you learn more about and participate in the EFFORT studyLink here to watch a short video by Dr. Daren Heyland to learn more about the study that addresses protein in the ICU.

And Finally, thank you our loyal CNM DPG Members for sticking with our DPG and recognizing how important it is for our own work at our local levels to stay current on our practices, which is what occurs with CNM DPG Membership.
