The Abbott Nutrition Health Institute has been advancing online healthcare professional education for more than 10 years and continues in its commitment to being the world’s leading provider of therapeutic nutrition educational resources for everyone, at every stage of life. Today we support and empower half a million healthcare professionals and the millions of patients they serve.
As we all work together to respond to the global health challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, we stand in partnership with physicians and healthcare professionals—many of whom have been part of the ANHI community—as they continue to work so hard on the front lines to provide direct clinical care. We are grateful for your leadership, dedication, and commitment to quality preventive and supportive patient care.
Expanding on our breadth of experience as an online education provider, we have developed new resources, including a Special Report on Nutrition & Immunity which provides a podcast series on the European Society for Clinical Nutrition & Metabolism (ESPEN)’s guidelines for nutrition support of patients with COVID-19 and an infographic for patients on nutrition and immunity. In addition, we are collaborating with educational programs across the country who are using our online content to supplement their curricula as they quickly retool coursework to support distance learning. We are also continuing to partner with healthcare institutions as they build out their online continuing education offerings for clinical staff.
We value our partnership with the American College of Preventive Medicine and will continue in our commitment to make new education programs and resources available to you during this time. For the most up to date information on these resources, visit ANHI.org.
