[CME] APPLYING THE SCIENCE OF HMOS: OPTIMIZING THE GUT MICROBIOME FOR IMPROVED INFANT HEALTH AND DEVELOPMENT
A growing body of data has underscored the critical importance of human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) in enhancing the development of the neonatal intestinal microbiota and conferring additional measures of immune protection among breastfed infants. Such data have led to the recognition of HMOs as a key component of appropriate infant nutrition. However, many clinicians remain unfamiliar with recent findings that support the incorporation of HMOs into infant nutrition strategies.
In this online series of 3 micro-learning, self-study courses, supported through a medical education grant by Abbott Nutrition Health Institute, clinical experts provide practical education on comprehensive nutritional strategies for improved infant health and development, focusing on the optimal use of HMOs. To facilitate application of the latest data to practice, each module incorporates succinct yet in-depth interpretation of the latest guidelines, in addition to data from randomized controlled trials and real-world studies.

Dr Lisa Renzi-Hammond earned her BS, MS and doctorate degrees in from the Psychology Department at the University of Georgia. While at the University of Georgia, Dr Renzi-Hammond specialized in visual neuroscience and neurological development and studied the ways in which implementing behavioral changes influences vision system function, as well as risk for acquired ocular and neurological diseases. Dr Renzi-Hammond completed her postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Texas at Austin as a member of three different disciplinary groups: the Center for Perceptual Systems, the Institute for Neuroscience, and the Nutrition Sciences Department. Dr Renzi-Hammond also served as a visiting scientist at the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Center on Ageing at Tufts University in Boston, MA, where she was a member of the Carotenoids in Health Laboratory.
Following her graduate and post-graduate training, Dr Renzi-Hammond returned to the University of Georgia as faculty, where she founded the Human Biofactors Laboratory and published numerous peer-reviewed articles and book chapters on the topic of nutrition and visual and neurological function. She has presented this research in a wide variety of national and international venues. She is currently an Assistant Professor in the UGA College of Public Health, the UGA Neuroscience Program, and is adjunct faculty in the Behavioral and Brain Sciences Program in the Department of Psychology.
