About


Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital, an affiliate of the University of Maryland Medical System and Johns Hopkins Medicine, is pleased to present Strategies for Treating Pediatric Feeding Disorders — A Kaleidoscope of Ideas.

This two-day conference will cover the wide spectrum of issues from global nutrition and the basic science and physiology behind eating to how these struggles affect families and social dynamics. The goal is to provide an open forum to collaboratively talk and debate these issues, highlight strategies and find solutions that improve the lives of children and their families.

Participants will have an opportunity to collaborate across disciplines in real time, be refreshed on the science behind feeding, evaluate case studies, build relationships nationally and internationally, earn continuing education credits and hear from families about their feeding struggles.
