Transplant Nutrition


Registration is now open!

Adult and Pediatric Nutrition Conference 

The  goal of the Transplant Nutrition Conference is to provide state-of-the-art information on the science and practice of transplant nutrition to solid organ transplant dietitians and other transplant professionals. 

This conference is appropriate for both the entry level and the advanced practice transplant dietitian and provides content to maintain required competency in transplant nutrition.

Nutrition Conference will only be held in-person this year to allow for hands-on demonstrations, public speaking opportunities, and most importantly, networking opportunities. We understand that not every institution provides travel or registration reimbursement, but we, as a committee, have fought for a competitive registration price in hopes that dietitians will consider attending even in the absence of reimbursement.
