Zolik Family Pediatric Nutrition Month: Evaluation and Management of Pancreatic Malabsorption in Infants, Children, and Adolescents

March 21, 2023
We invite you to join us for the Zolik Family Pediatric Nutrition Month CME webinar series! These free webinars will feature pediatric nutrition experts from around the country sharing information to assist you in caring for your patients and their families.
 
The Pediatric Nutrition Month CME webinar series is made possible thanks to a philanthropic gift from the Zolik Family.
 
Digestive/exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) can be hereditary, acquired, transient, or longer-term. The main consequence of EPI is maldigestion and subsequent malabsorption of fats and fat-soluble vitamins; clinical signs and symptoms of EPI may be subtle. Surveillance for and recognition of EPI is essential as the consequences of these nutrient deficiencies can be significant with long-term and sometimes irreversible effects. This session's goal is to help participants identify risk factors for, diagnose, and manage EPI. Ongoing surveillance for nutritional status and related health outcomes remains paramount.
