As an important step toward raising awareness about malnutrition and promoting ASPEN's Malnutrition Awareness Week™, the Malnutrition Committee has created informative consumer poster entitled, Ask About Your Nutrition and the Ask About Your Child's Nutrition. We encourage you and your institution to use this poster as an educational tool for your patients. The posters are also available in Spanish below.
Increase awareness. Reduce re-admission rates and lower the annual cost of $156.7 billion. Download our buzz kit to spread the word.
Malnutrition Awareness Week™ has been recognized by a number of state legislatures, including Florida, Georgia, Texas and Louisiana. Interested in sending a resolution to your state legislature regarding Malnutrition Awareness Week™?
If you live in a state or area with an ASPEN chapter, contact the chapter leaders to offer your assistance with this effort.
If your state or area does not have an ASPEN chapter, download the customizable resolution and research the process you will need to go through. Most information can be found on each state’s General or State Assembly website.
