“Our hope is that the entirely virtual and on-demand nature of this year’s conference coupled with the removed hurdle of travel costs inspires even more healthcare professionals and people from around the world who serve children with PFD to join and advance their skills or earn continuing education units,” says Feeding Matters’ President and CEO Chris Linn. “The conference presents attendees with evidence-based education for the evaluation and treatment of PFD, up to 14 hours of continuing education units and some of the industry’s latest research.”
About Feeding Matters
For kids with pediatric feeding disorder (PFD), every bite of food can be painful, scary, or simply impossible to swallow, potentially impeding nutrition, development, growth, and overall well-being. Yet, there is no functional system of care for PFD locally, nationally, or internationally. That’s why Feeding Matters is dedicated to creating a world where children with pediatric feeding disorder will thrive. Established in 2006, Feeding Matters is the first organization in the world uniting the concerns of families with the field’s leading advocates, experts, and allied healthcare professionals to ignite unprecedented change to the system of care through advocacy, education, support, and research – including a stand-alone diagnosis, the International Pediatric Feeding Disorder Conference, and the Infant and Child Feeding Questionnaire. In 2018, Feeding Matters reached more than 125,000 individuals in 50 states and 143 countries through their programs and website.
