Presenting to the American Society for Nutrition’s Annual Meeting
Funding travel to present on the effectiveness of interventions to protect, promote and support optimal breastfeeding in South Asia
The American Society for Nutrition’s annual conference gathers global and public health professionals, scientific researchers, students, practitioners and policymakers to advance nutrition science and its practical application. Craig, participating in Nutrition 2018, represents the Community-Engaged Nutrition Intervention Research (CENTIR) Group with their paper “Effectiveness of interventions to protect, promote, and support optimal breastfeeding practices for children 0-23 months in South Asia, 1990-2015: A scoping review.” The team reports evidence on the characteristics and delivery strategies of programs and interventions that have effectively improved breastfeeding outcomes in South Asia over a 25-year period, culminating a yearlong collaboration with UNICEF Regional Office for South Asia exploring breastfeeding and maternal nutrition in five countries with high prevalence of child stunting.
