In collaboration with the Ministry of Health, Tribhuvan University Institute of Medicine, Patan Academy of Health Sciences, St. John’s National Academy of Health Sciences, and Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Nutrition conducted the Second National Workshop titled “Nutrition Research Designs and Methods”, in Kathmandu, Nepal from April 21-27, 2019.
In late November 2018, the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Nutrition hosted two successful trainings on advanced nutrition support for dietetic students, registered dietitians, critical care nurses, and doctors working at the two major tertiary hospitals in Malawi — Kamuzu Central Hospital in Lilongwe and Queens Central Hospital in Blantyre. There were also doctors and dietitians from private hospitals in attendance, including Baylor Children’s Hospital and Blantyre Adventist Hospital.
My winter began in Kathmandu last week where I attended the 6th Annual Scientific Symposium on Agriculture- Nutrition Pathways organised by Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Nutrition. I have attended the Annual event 3 years in a row and this year was extra special as the event also was celebrating 25 years of Nepal’s Progress in Nutrition. What makes this event unique is that it attracts students and young researchers in equal numbers as persons from academia, policy makers and programme implementors in the field of agriculture- nutrition research relevant to Nepal.
