NNI Workshop on Frailty – live webcast

13 March 2014

 

83rd Nestle Nutrition Institute Workshop on Frailty - Streamed live from Barcelona, Spain 14th March— 15th March 2014

Recent work on frailty has sought to characterize both the underlying changes in the body and the manifestations that make frailty recognizable. It is well-agreed that a decline in physiologic reserves and resilience is the essence of being frail. Similarly, scientists agree that the risk of frailty increases with age and with the incidence of diseases.

The 83rd Nestle Nutrition Institute (NNI) Workshop will be broadcast live from Barcelona and will bring together leading experts in the area of frailty pathophysiology, phenotype and patient care.
