ResearchCon 2021 | Cystic Fibrosis and Nutrition: A Weighty Topic

Published on april 21, 2021 by

This session will take an in-depth look into the relationships people with cystic fibrosis have with nutrition, weight, and body image, both with and without CFTR modulators. Through presentations of the latest studies and a panel discussion with registered dietitians, attendees can expect a collaborative discussion incorporating audience participation and questions.

Speakers will examine current topics, including the evolution of the CF diet, the value of assessments such as BMI and body composition, the impact of highly effective modulators on the CF body, the continued importance of feeding tubes, and how the dynamics between patients and clinicians can affect approaches to eating and health.

Originally recorded April 15, 2021.

Speakers: Nichlolas Kelly, MS, RD, LD, Jordan Robison, MS, RD, LD, D.B. Sanders, Virginia Stallings, MD, Lynda Griffin
