Malnutrition Awareness Week



Join the American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (ASPEN) September 24-28, 2018 for their seventh annual Malnutrition Awareness Week™.

Malnutrition Awareness Week is a multi- organizational, multi-pronged campaign created by ASPEN to:
• Educate healthcare professionals to identify and treat for malnutrition earlier
• Educate consumers/patients to discuss their nutrition status with healthcare professionals
• Increase awareness of nutrition’s role on patient recovery

It’s a week filled with valuable educational webinars and sharing of informational materials.  Note that Academy members receive free registration using the discount code MAW-Academy.  

Participants will receive continuing education credits for participating in most of the webinars. ASPEN is accredited to provide medical, pharmacy, nursing and dietetic credits.

In addition to the webinars, ASPEN will facilitate a Malnutrition Awareness Week Twitter Chat focused on the role of nutrition on falls, fractures and patient safety, provide support materials, and host a live, virtual lunch with the experts on legislation for malnutrition prevention. Join the conversation online by using the hashtag #MAW2018.
