Malnutrition Awareness Week in VA
October 2 - October 8
For the first time, Virginia is recognizing Oct. 2-8 as Malnutrition Awareness Week. Malnutrition can impact a number of at-risk populations and can impact health on a number of levels in both the community and healthcare setting. People who are malnourished experience longer healthcare stays, poorer health outcomes, and more expensive care costs. As RDNs we have the opportunity and responsibility to be at the forefront of the prevention and treatment of malnutrition. Learn how you can better identify malnutrition and make a difference
