N&G 2016 SPEAKERS INTRODUCE THEIR LECTURES

THURSDAY, MARCH 17, 2016

JAN-MAARTEN WIT​, THE NETHERLANDS​​

Session Title: Catch-Up Growth
​Lecture Title: Catch-Up Growth - Mechanism of Action

Please describe your learning objectives: 
Catch-up growth is observed when a growth disorder is causally treated, but the mechanism is still unclear. I shall discuss the experimental findings that have generated the two main hypotheses. 

How does your lecture connect to a current "hot topic"? / Why is your lecture important for potential participants?
A current hot topic is whether nutritional interventions are effective to reverse stunting of underpriviliged children. Insight in the mechanism of catch-up growth can help to understand the relatively modest effect of such interventions.  

MICHAL YACKOBOVITCH-GAVAN​, ISRAEL

Session Title: Catch-Up Growth
​Lecture Title: Nutritional Catch-Up Growth

Please describe your learning objectives: 
The lecture will present a one-year RCT study aimed to determine the effectiveness of inovative nutritional supplement on growth in short and lean 3 to 9-years children.

RACHEL ADATTO, ISRAEL

Session Title: Social Preferences and Body Ideals Impact Growth, Nutrition and Health 
​Lecture Title: The Quest for Beauty - High Prevalence of Eating Disorders Fostered by the Modeling Industry

Please describe your learning objectives: 
Impaired body image Is important in developing eating disorder.  Prohibition  of underweight models and photoshop to reduce weight, can be used in fighting E.D​.

How does your lecture connect to a current "hot topic"? / Why is your lecture important for potential participants?
The "photoshop" law or the "models" law which was enacted in Israel 4 years ago, made global change in the attitude to underweight  models. Less underweight models and more normal wight models in the fashion industry and advertisment​.

JORUNN SUNDGOT-BORGEN​, NORWAY

Session Title: Social Preferences and Body Ideals Impact Growth, Nutrition and Health 
​Lecture Title: The Quest for Performance - High Prevalence of Nutritional Stunting and Eating Disorders among Elite Athletes

Please describe your learning objectives: 
1. Disorded eating and eating disorders is common among young athletes.  2.There is a need for education regarding risk factors, early identification, appropriate management, effective treatment, and preventative efforts for the special subpopulation of young athletes. 

How does your lecture connect to a current "hot topic"? / Why is your lecture important for potential participants?
Prevention will be focused in the presentation:  We do have data showing that it is possible to prevent the development of eating disorders and symptoms associated with eating disorders among elite athletes.

VIRGINIA A. STALLINGS​, USA

Session Title: Social Preferences and Body Ideals Impact Growth, Nutrition and Health 
​Lecture Title: How a society protects and promotes health growth and nutrition in its population

Please describe your learning objectives: 
This session will consider how the desire for tallness, beauty and athletic performance interact with a society and its medical and nutritional policy in children and adolescents.

How does your lecture connect to a current "hot topic"? / Why is your lecture important for potential participants?
Current issues including excess use of growth hormone, fashion industry requirements for very thin professional models and eating disorders in young elite athletes will be considered.​

MARY FEWTRELL​, UK

Session Title: Complementary Feeding
​Lecture Title: Introduction of Solids, Nutrition Adequacy and the Risk of Allergy

Please describe your learning objectives: 
This lecture will cover two issues of importance during the complementary feeding period:  1. providing adequate amounts of key nutrients   2. current evidence on the timing of introduction of allergenic foods and the development of allergy

How does your lecture connect to a current "hot topic"? / Why is your lecture important for potential participants?​
The timing of introduction of allergenic foods is a 'hot topic' One aim of the lecture is to present up to date information on latest developments. 

LIRAN HIERSCH​, ISRAEL

Session Title: SGA
​Lecture Title: The Impact of Fetal and Maternal Nutrition during Pregnancy on Long-Term Outcome

Please describe your learning objectives: 
The importance of early primary prevention of many diseases cannot be overemphasized and should be started as early as possible, and perhaps, even in utero.

RAANAN SHAMIR, ISRAEL

Session Title: Complementary Feeding
​Lecture Title: Gluten Introduction and Celiac Disease

Please describe your learning objectives: 
Until recently, it was thought that early introduction of gluten while the infant is being breast fed protects against celiac disease.   New data show that these assumptions are wrong!

How does your lecture connect to a current "hot topic"? / Why is your lecture important for potential participants?​
It provides current and contemporary knowledge on the (non) importance of the age of gluten introduction​.

SATURDAY, MARCH 19, 2016

CHRISTOPHE DUPONT, FRANCE

Session Title: Nutrition and Allergy
​Lecture Title: Nutritional safety of infant formulas designed for milk allergic children

Please describe your learning objectives: 
Infant formulas designed for milk allergic children are now widely used. Milk –based extensively-hydrolyzed formulas are tolerated > 90% of infants with CMA. Formulas based on rice hydrolysates provide an alternative. Amino acid-based formulas provide almost complete disappearance of allergenicity. Formulas need to be tested in order to ensure safety and efficacy by blinded, randomized and multicentric clinical trials.

How does your lecture connect to a current "hot topic"? / Why is your lecture important for potential participants?​
Proving safety and efficacy of formulas is now required using clinical trials respecting good clinical practices.

Session Title: Neonatology - Donor Human Milk
​Lecture Title: Evidence for use of Donor Human Milk in the NICU

Please describe your learning objectives: 
Hot topics and most recent discoveries in neonatal nutrition scientific world.

How does your lecture connect to a current "hot topic"? / Why is your lecture important for potential participants?​

JUDD L WALSON​, USA

Session Title: Microbiota
​Lecture Title: Microbiota and Its Link to Growth

Please describe your learning objectives: 
Malnutrition is not simply a problem of lack of high calorie foods or nutrients. In many resource-limited settings, chronic exposure to contaminated environments leads to a disruption in the microbiome. This appears to have dramatic impacts on the ability of the gut to absorb and utilize energy and on the energy requirements of the growth and development of young children in these settings.

How does your lecture connect to a current "hot topic"? / Why is your lecture important for potential participants?​
Nutrition and gut health are closely interlinked. Progress in reducing the global burden of under nutrition and stunting will require innovative solutions to support and sustain a healthy microbiome.
