Pediatric Nutrition Telehealth 

Pediatric Nutrition Telehealth (PNT) focuses on the nutritional needs of all children, including those with chronic and acute medical conditions.  PNT helps nutrition providers throughout the state develop their skills in pediatric nutrition, thereby increasing access to medical nutrition therapy for pediatric patients in rural and underserved areas of New Mexico.

This case based format focuses on professional development of local providers by exploring nutrition assessment and estimation of nutritional needs, modalities of feeding, cultural considerations, and family interactions.

Over the course of the academic year, August – May, monthly didactic presentations of twenty minutes are followed by case consultation for nutrition and primary health care providers to present patients with nutritional concerns to PNT participants and expert pediatric nutrition providers.
