Malnutrition Awareness Lecture
May 14 @ 9:45 am - 10:45 am
Malnutrition Awareness Week
Did you know that 30%-55% of patients have been found to be malnourished when they are admitted to hospitals? Would you know how to identify signs of malnutrition in a friend or family member?
Malnutrition is not the same as being underweight it could be caused by a vitamin/mineral deficiency or an excess of nutrients in your diet. Malnutrition can contribute to complications during and after surgery, and increase the length of hospital stays for people with chronic health conditions.
A registered dietitian from North Shore Elder Services will be onsite here. Come learn more about how you can improve health outcomes for yourself or a loved one and get a free screening!
Registration required. Please call Rosanna at 978-744-0924 to register.
