The PhilSPEN Regional Clinical Nutrition Congress

The PhilSPEN Regional Conference/Symposia is a new thrust developed by the society to bring the updates and practical applications of the art and science of clinical nutrition closer to the multidisciplinary members of the nutrition team throughout the country. It will give the PhilSPEN members practicing in the different regions of the country the chance and opportunity to host and attend this learning event where they could not have if the convention was held once a year in Metro-Manila.

We would like to congratulate the organizers of this endeavor and to thank them for their never-failing commitment to bring clinical nutrition practice to the different institutions of their specific regions. God bless you all.
