Pediatric Iron Deficiency
The recording of this webinar, Pediatric Iron Deficiency, is now available for viewing.
Do you noticed yourself stumbling in your practice when it comes to pediatric iron deficiency?
Are you confident that you are identifying children at risk?
Did you know the iron deficiency is the most common nutrient deficiency in children, making it a high priority to screen for in our assessments?
We are thrilled to announce that Registered Dietitian, Marg Alfieri, will be presenting a free webinar on Pediatric Iron Deficiency.
Marg has both personal and professional experience with Iron Deficiency Anemia (IDA). Her youngest son had an IDA which profoundly shocked her as she was doing research on IDA when he was diagnosed!
Our first thought when we heard this ... how many kids have we met and missed??!!
We met Marg via our Facebook group, Pediatric Dietitians- Newbies to Masters. She has been a fantastic resource and supporter of members of this group, especially surrounding the topic of iron deficiency.
This webinar is for you if:
✔️ You are interested in building your skills and confidence related to iron deficiency
✔️ You feel unsure when to recommend bloodwork and who is at the greatest risk
✔️ You lack training and/or access to experienced pediatric dietitians
