Pearls of knowledge
In its continuous efforts to educate on the importance of clinical nutrition and of good nutrition practice, ESPEN is launching a video series, called "Pearls of knowledge".
Pearls of Knowledge are short cuts providing a general overview of clinical and research topics, which are intended for health professionals but also for anyone else interested in the field of clinical nutrition.
In the following videos you can find nutritionDay’s project leader Prof. Dr. Michael Hiesmayr talking about the nutritionDay project and its focus on nutrition in the oncology field.
