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
Please join us: It’s a week filled with valuable educational webinars, virtual chats with experts, and sharing of informational materials.
About ASPEN's Malnutrition Awareness Week
ASPEN started Malnutrition Awareness Week in 2012 with two webinars and a podcast. Each year, we expand our content and reach. In 2014, ASPEN received a Certificate of Special Recognition from US Senator Benjamin Cardin of Maryland for Malnutrition Awareness Week. In 2015, this award winning program became a part of the National Health Observances Calendar.
Today it is supported by more than 43 organizations who share our educational opportunities and messages with over 1 million healthcare professionals, patients, and caregivers.
