Dear Colleagues,

The theme of the conference is “Joining Hands to Improve Quality of Nutrition Support Practices”. This meeting will address our challenges in making nutrition support to be recognized and routinely practiced as a standard management for the patients, as well as how to create a network and collaboration. The topics will range from nutrition screening to management, from infant to elderly, from malnutrition to obesity, from molecular basis to bed-side practices in varieties of specific diseases and conditions. These areas will be shared between global and Asian experts in these fields. 

On behalf of the organizing committee, I would like to invite you to join us in PENSA Congress 2020, in Bangkok. It is a very good opportunity to be reunited with your friends, to share your experiences and to meet all the experts from all over the world.

The Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition Society of Asia (PENSA)

The Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition Society of Asia (PENSA) is a society for Asian physicians and personnel working in nutritional support, The society was founded on May 6, 1995 at a meeting in Chiang Rai, Thailand, by a group of physicians from Japan, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Pakistan and Thailand. It was founded to provide a forum in which Physicians practicing nutritional support for hospitalized patients could address and exchange clinical experiences and scientific data in nutritional sciences that are unique to this region. Since that time the society has experienced great growth. The Congress of PENSA was a special academic meeting for people practicing nutritional support.
