MUMBAI, 3 JUNE, 2017  (GPN): The 9th edition of Apollo Hospital’s International Clinical Nutrition Update (AICNU) Conference got underway in Mumbai today. Organised by the Clinical Nutrition and  Dietetics arm of  Apollo Hospitals Group, the annual conference continues to provide a core knowledge exchange platform to distinguished Clinical Nutritionists and Dieticians from around the globe to highlight the latest advancements and updates in the field of Clinical Nutrition.

The theme of this year’s conference is “Connecting Evidence to Clinical Nutrition Practice”.  Over 550 delegates across 10 countries will be getting together for 2 days to share best practices. The Conference is designed to have a wide variety of formats including debates, lectures, symposia, abstracts sessions, discussions, and presentations that will highlight important issues like nutrition in intestinal failure, in surgical oncology, immunonutrition, hospital malnutrition and clinical nutrition research.

Our Clinical Nutrition team works closely with clinical teams in developing patient-specific nutrition.

This conference is an attempt to provide such a platform.” 

Dr Anupam Sibal, Group Medical Director, Apollo Hospitals Groupsaid, “AICNU is a leading opportunity for clinical dieticians, academic faculty, research experts in nutrition and dietetics and talented student communities providing an ideal environment to share the latest innovations in Nutrition and Dietetics.

Dr. Bhuvaneshwari Shankar, Group Chief Dietitian, Apollo Hospitals & Organizing Chairperson of the event said, “The importance of Clinical Nutritionists role in the healthcare domain need not be overemphasized. It is very important for all practicing dietitians and clinical nutritionists to consistently and constantly upgrade their knowledge on the latest trends in clinical nutrition and practice evidence-based nutrition”.

Dr. Narendra D Trivedi, CEO – Apollo Hospitals Navi Mumbai said, “Apollo Hospitals, Navi Mumbai is proud to be hosting this event for the first time within one year of its launch.
