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

In addition to the webinars, ASPEN will facilitate a Malnutrition Awareness Week Twitter Chat, 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. For more information and to register, visit
