2010 Emory Metabolic Nutrition Symposium | News

 

The fourth Genetic Metabolic Nutrition Symposium, hosted by the Southeast NBS & Genetics Collaborative (SERC) at Emory University, took place Oct. 11-15, 2010 in Atlanta, GA.  Course Director Rani H. Singh, PhD, RD compiled experts in the field from Emory University, Children’s Hospital of Orange County, Maria Fareri Children's Hospital, Oregon Health & Science University, Tulane University, and UNC Chapel Hill to serve as faculty and to facilitate lively discussion during the week-long educational event.

A total of 23 attendees participated--comprised of 19 metabolic dietitians, 1 metabolic nurse practitioner, and 4 medical fellows from the United States (AZ, CA, DC, ID, MO, NC, NJ, NY, PA, OH, RI, SC, and WV), Australia, Mexico, and the Netherlands.  SERC supplied partial funding for the US attendees.  In addition, the Mountain States Region (MSCRGG) supplied partial funding for their metabolic dietitian attending from Arizona.  All accepted applicants received free registration, educational materials, symposium meals, and lodging. 

The Metabolic Nutrition Symposium provided attendees a foundation in genetic metabolic nutrition, and information related to the screening of newborns and short-term follow-up of patients. The lectures also addressed biochemistry, metabolic pathway, pathophysiology, and management strategies for the long-term follow-up of patients with an IEM, focusing on the four major categories of disorders: amino acid disorders, organic acidemias, fatty acid oxidation disorders, and disorders of carbohydrate metabolism. 

SERC will continue efforts to secure funding in order to maintain such educational endeavors and to share this important knowledge with more clinicians working in the field of IEM.
