Just Announced!  The next “Weekend Warrior” Mini-Nutrition Support program here at UVA Health System in Charlottesville will be held on March 10-11, 2011!  The Weekend Warrior program was started five years ago as a 2-day, weekend alternative to the week-long Nutrition Support Traineeship.  It has since become an annual event here in Charlottesville.  The goal is to provide as much up to date, practical nutrition support education as possible in a two day course.

This year, by popular demand, the program a will be a “GI-Focused” weekend.  Lectures will focus on specific GI disease states and gastrointestinal disorders.  Topics will include: 

  • Short Bowel Syndrome--Carol Parrish, MS, RD
  • IBD/Crohn's--Joe Krenitsky, MS, RD
  • Nutritional Management of GI Fistulas--Kate Willcutts, MS, RD, CNSC
  • Nutritional Fallout from Upper GI Surgery--Carol Parrish, MS, RD
  • Micronutrient Issues in Gastric Bypass-Kelly O'Donnell, MS, RD, CNSD
  • Nutrition in Liver Failure--Joe Krenitsky, MS, RD
  • Hepatic Encephalopathy--Neeral Shah, MD
  • Gastric versus Jejunal Feeding--Joe Krenitsky, MS, RD
  • Gastroparesis--Carol Parrish, MS, RD
  • Pancreatitis--Carol Parrish, MS, RD
  • Enteral Feeding Tube Show & Tell
  • Clinical cases with audience

Lectures will be enhanced by interactive case studies, question and answer periods, and group discussions.  We welcome new participants, as well as past Weekend Warrior or traineeship participants who are interested in this disease-specific session.
