Dr. Azad contributes expertise to invited panel in Washington DC, scanning evidence on nutrient content and health benefits of breast milk
As part of the Committee on "Scanning for New Evidence on the Nutrient Content of Human Milk: A Model for the Derivation of Age-Specific Nutrient Requirements", Dr. Azad contributed expertise at a meeting held at the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine (NASEM) in Washington, DC on November 7, 2019.
The goals of this activity are "to conduct a literature search and evidence scan of the peer-reviewed published literature on the nutrient content and volume of human milk as an indicator of infant nutritional requirements. The committee will develop pre-specified criteria to characterize nutrient levels in human milk and to identify characteristics of the nutritional quality of human milk in relation to infant requirements to support normal growth and development."
