Neurocognitive Development & Feeding Strategies in the NICU: Fortification of Human Milk

Ekhard E. Ziegler, MD, of the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine, discusses the impact of inadequate nutrition on the preterm infant. He describes fortification methods for human milk, focusing in particular on an adjustable fortification strategy to provide optimal nutrition and thus prevent growth failure and impaired neurocognitive development. After listening to this webinar, participants will leave with suggestions on how to implement fortification strategies into their NICU setting.
