How Complementary Feeding in Infants Affects Allergies, Chronic Disease, and Neurodevelopment
Recommendations for the timing and type of complementary foods to introduce to infants have recently changed. These changes are due to increased understanding of how these foods affect the development of food allergies, risk for obesity and other chronic diseases, and infant neurodevelopment. This activity brings the current recommendations and recent research together and organizes them for clinicians in pediatrics to enable them to understand and convey this information to parents of infants.
A Current Understanding of Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune inflammatory disorder that affects more than 900,000 Americans. Patient presentations vary widely; therefore, symptom recognition and an understanding of diagnostic criteria are critical in providing timely patient referrals. This activity describes recognition and diagnosis of MS using the updated 2017 criteria, and offers an overview of epidemiology, prognosis, and treatment strategies.
