Join us for a special CME event planned in collaboration with Swedish Medical Center in January, 2017 in Seattle, WA.
The Pediatric Metabolic Health and Nutrition Summit is a two-day, immersive, regional symposium designed to illustrate the connection between what a child eats and the metabolic consequences that will often last a lifetime. Through interactive round-table panels, didactic lectures and demonstrations, an international faculty of experts will present basic nutrition science, describe the prevalence of metabolic disease and its’ causes, debunk key nutrition myths that misinform and prevent progress, discuss best practices, and provide community-based solutions that healthcare providers can implement in their practices.
This course is designed for physicians and all allied health professionals who care for pediatric patients in the Western United States, specifically in the following specialties: Pediatrics and Pediatric Subspecialties, Gastroenterology, Bariatric Medicine and Family Medicine. REGISTER HERE
The IRN supports the efforts of Dietitians for Professional Integrity (DFPI), a group of dietetics professionals “looking to advance the dietetic profession and credential through advocating for greater financial transparency and ethical sponsorships within the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.” The IRN fully agrees with DFPI that “the American public deserves nutrition information that is not tainted by food industry interests.”
Michele Simon's new report about the American Society of Nutrition: Nutrition Scientists on the Take from Big Food
"ASN has many problematic ties with the food and beverage industry. These ties can taint scientific objectivity, negatively impact the organization’s policy recommendations, and result in industry-friendly research and messaging that is shared with nutrition professionals and the general public alike."
