Creating the Future of ‘Nutritional Therapy’
Since 1896, Nutricia has pioneered nutritional solutions that aim to help people live longer, more joyful and healthier lives. Building on more than a century of research and innovation, Nutricia has championed the goal of life-changing and life-saving nutrition to create a leading specialised nutrition portfolio that can change a health trajectory for life. Through its nutritional solutions, Nutricia helps to address some of the world’s biggest health challenges, from the first 1000 days and early life, through older age and chronic disease.
With dysphagia being both an underdiagnosed and undertreated affliction, Nutricia stands together with patients, carers and their healthcare providers to improve awareness of effective screening and nutritional management. Nutricia provides a targeted range of product solutions that aim to help patients achieve a safer swallow, restore enjoyment for drinks and around mealtimes, and protect against malnutrition, dehydration and aspiration pneumonia.

Due to coronavirus and in the interests of health and safety, the ESSD will hold an online meeting instead of the planned onsite congress in Girona, Spain.
This situation is new for us as it is for much of the industry, but we are making sure that sponsors and exhibitors will be able to interact with delegates and show their products and services and have a stand in the virtual exhibition. We welcome you and ask you to continue to support our congress in these new circumstances.
Most aspects of the congress will be the same: free papers and posters will be presented as research must be divulged as soon as possible, and invited speakers will present the cutting edge of dysphagia management.
We are hopeful that more people may attend the meeting as they do not need to make the journey to an onsite congress. Please contact the executive officer Jane Lewis at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in sponsoring and exhibiting at our online meeting. We will post details as they are decided.
