October 4-8 marks Malnutrition Awareness Week, which was created to provide up-to-date information on how malnutrition affects patients in and out of the hospital.
In recognition of Malnutrition Awareness Week, Olympic Medical Center’s Nutrition Services department is excited to partner with the American Society of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (ASPEN) to provide free webinars on malnutrition awareness and education. The webinars are free using the discount code MAW-Olympic.
