3.October 2019

Dr. Katarina Melzer co-authors the 5th edition of the “Blue Book” – Basics in Clinical Nutrition. The book provides the essential knowledge for all educational activities of the European Society for Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism (ESPEN). It includes the chapter on „Sports Nutrition“, the module which Dr. Katarina Melzer has been chairing, moderating and teaching for the past 10 years as part of the Leonardo da Vinci Life Long Learning Project (LLL program) of the ESPEN.

The „Sport Nutrition“ module will be updated in 2020 in order to incorporate the newest, most important findings in the area of physical activity and nutrition, including the effects of exercise on energy balance regulation, physical activity and chronic diseases, nutrition for endurance and strength, as well as sports supplements.

The revised module will be introduced at the upcoming ESPEN Congress in Lyon, France in September 2020.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
