Nutrition and Metabolism Research Paper Session: Pediatric, Neonatal, Pregnancy, and Lactation (SU35)

Sunday, March 3 • 2:00 PM – 3:30 PM ET

Today’s medical environment demands evidence-based practice, replicable results, and improved patient outcomes. Our abstract authors conduct research to help meet these challenges and provide breakthroughs in our knowledge and in our patient care. These sessions are dedicated to presentations of high-ranking abstracts. The abstracts will be presented by topic, so you can explore cutting edge research on issues that interest you. The abstracts will also be published in the Journal of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (JPEN), making them part of the body of evidence available to guide your clinical care.
