About Us

More about the project:

Assuring Pediatric Nutrition in the Hospital & Community was developed to foster partnerships between community based agencies and those organizations responsible for paying for care for high risk children. The goal of this project, initially funded by the federal Maternal Child Health Bureau, is to provide training and resources to community dietitians to assure quality pediatric nutrition care within changing health care systems.

The project began in 1998, with a 3-year SPRANS grant through the Maternal and Child Health Bureau. Since then, a partnership with the University of Washington Continuing Nursing Education program has allowed us to continue to offer the 3-day course on an annual basis. In addition, the listserve is available to conference attendees and paid subscribers.

We provide continuing education to Registered Dietitians and others interested in pediatric nutrition through an intensive 3-day training program, and an on-going consultative listserve.
