We’re all looking forward to this year’s FPWR Family Conference, and one of the informative sessions I hope you’ll join me at is Melanie Silverman’s Optimal Nutrition in Prader-Willi Syndrome.
Melanie is a pediatric registered dietitian and board certified lactation consultant. She’s worked with patients who have PWS for more than 10 years, and she’s gained a wealth of knowledge about what a healthy diet looks like and how dietary recommendations have changed over time. Melanie is also the Chief Clinical Officer for Pacify, a tele-health mobile application.
As every parent and caregiver knows, feeding kids with PWS is one of the biggest challenges we face and one of the most emotional. As Melanie notes in her session description for Optional Nutrition in Prader-Willi Syndrome, “Nutrition is complicated, and the internet isn’t helpful.” She’s here to give all of us a better understanding of what and how to feed our loved ones, both adults and children.
