Nutrition Support Blog: GI-Focused Weekend Warrior
March 15, 2012
Thanks to everyone who joined us for our first "GI-Focused" Weekend Warrior! Twenty-five clinicians from all over the US came to Charlottesville this past weekend for a great weekend of learning and sharing. We welcomed both new and returning participants to the program. The goal of this program was to provide a more specialized, disease-specific curriculum and, as always, to provide as much up to date, practical nutrition support education as possible in a 2-day course! We enjoyed meeting everyone and hope that you all enjoyed your time in Charlottesville and found the program rewarding!
Based on the success of this program and the feedback we have received thus far, we plan to alternate this GI-Focused program with the original Weekend Warrior program on an annual basis here in Charlottesville.
If you missed the Weekend Warrior here at UVA, the program is going "on the road" a few times this year! The next session is planned for Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada on April 21-22, 2012.

Stay tuned for more information about other upcoming "on the road" programs!
