Past GASPEN / CHOA Nutrition Support Professional Development WebEx Events

Updated: Aug 9

The WebEx events consist of colloquiums and core lectures. The Colloquiums feature Children’s and Emory's speakers addressing nutrition support topics salient to your practice. The Core Lectures, designed to meet the continuing education needs of GI attending physicians and fellows, feature a greater GI emphasis. In contrast, the Colloquiums feature more advanced topics covering all areas of practice (e.g., renal, endocrinology, genetics, anthropometrics, arginine, etc. topics this year).
