As a part of the Yusuf Hamied Fellowship, Elena Ladas, Associate Professor, Department of Pediatrics at the Columbia University Medical Center, will organize a follow up workshop on the development of Nutrition Guidelines for Children and Adolescents with Cancer at the Columbia Global Centers | Mumbai.

The workshop aims to follow up on the accomplishments of expert working groups and will present and discuss latest evidence and findings related to clinician outreach, patient/parent education, dietary and anthropometric assessments for children and adolescents with cancer. The larger aim of the project is to develop guidelines which will eventually lead to improvements in clinical outcomes for children with cancer and serve as a supportive tool for practitioners.
