Canadian Malnutrition Awareness Week™

Sept 23 to 27, 2019.

Welcome to the fifth annual Canadian Malnutrition Awareness™ Week!

Canadian Malnutrition Awareness Week™ is a multi-organizational campaign presented by the Canadian Malnutrition Task Force (CMTF), a standing committee of the Canadian Nutrition Society (CNS). This year, CNS/CMTF is pleased to be partnering with ASPEN (American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition). 

Malnutrition Awareness Week™ was established in an effort to educate healthcare professionals to identify and treat for malnutrition earlier, educate consumers/patients on the importance of discussing their nutrition status with healthcare professionals, and to increase awareness of nutrition’s role on patient recovery. We are excited to offer a number of webinars and some useful resources that are available to both patients and families, and primary care workers.

Thank you for helping us to spread the word about this week and for your participation!

This year's theme is: 

Malnutrition in the Community

Sign up for daily webinars and check out our infographic resources targeted at health professionals and older adults.
