Building a strong foundation for a healthy life starts with infancy. Good nutrition in the first year of a child’s life provides the essential building blocks for optimal brain development and healthy growth.  This conference will focus on nutrition through the first year of life as it relates to prematurity, neonatal disease processes and the importance of human milk.  Through a multidisciplinary approach, attendees will learn and understand the role and importance of nutrition in early postnatal life.
