78th NNI Workshop held in Muscat, Oman

Posted:  Wednesday, May 22, 2013

Last month NNI hosted its 78th NNI workshop, looking at “International Nutrition: Achieving Millennium Goals and Beyond”.

The aim of the two-day event was to highlight the link between better nutrition, particularly in children and young women, and the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), and to elevate the importance of nutrition on the international agenda – an important topic which is all too often overlooked. Given the workshop’s goal, while it was held in Muscat, Oman and attended by 70 healthcare professionals (HCPs), for the first time it was also broadcast live via the NNI website, to reach thousands more HCPs around the world.

With more than 8,000 visits to the broadcast, it will not be the last time we use technology in this way to share key knowledge with HCPs and draw attention to critical nutrition related topics.
