Physiology and Targeted Nutrition in Infants 2019 Symposium – Pediatric Academic Societies Meeting
Participants will learn how targeted nutrition impacts the physiological development in infants during neonatal intensive care and the long-term development of preterm and term infants. Michael K. Georgieff, MD, and Camilia R. Martin, MD, discuss specific micro- and macro-nutritional components and their impact on developing physiology.
Dr. Martin provides the specifics of nutrient-directed metabolic programming in the early postnatal period and the risk of neonatal morbidities. Dr. Georgieff discusses how nutrition in the neonatal and postnatal period relates to brain development.
