Post a reply: Webinar Series on Kwashiorkor

Use of en-net is subject to the Terms and Conditions.

Kwashiorkor malnutrition affects hundreds of thousands of children and kills tens of thousands each year. Although recognized as a unique form of malnutrition since the 1930s, its etiology is still unclear. In 1968, a group of scientists studying and treating kwashiorkor met to discuss differences between kwashiorkor and wasting, leading to the diagnostic criteria currently used in treatment and study designs. Over the past 50 years, we have learned a lot more about the progression of kwashiorkor.

Through a series of webinars, researchers and practitioners will review recent evidence related to kwashiorkor. These webinars will lead to an expert meeting to discuss and advance kwashiorkor prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.

Webinars will be in late September, October, and November 2020. 

The first webinar will be on the 29th of September and you can register here
