Taking place June 10-11 at the Andaz Vienna Am Belvedere in Vienna, Austria, ICHMSI is the premier forum for thought leaders and medical experts in human milk science. Conference co-chairs, Professor Angelika Berger of the Medical University of Vienna and Professor Michael Zemlin of Saarland University Medical Center, will provide opening and closing remarks.
“Since the inception of this conference eight years ago, there has been an incredible evolution in our understanding of the health benefits of human milk,” Professor Berger said. “As clinical applications of human milk evolve, ICHMSI offers the ideal forum for thought leaders worldwide to share the latest research on the clinical potential of human milk, such as the importance of an Exclusive Human Milk Diet (EHMD) on neurodevelopment of critically ill, premature infants, as well as bioactivity and its health benefits for this population.”
“It’s an exciting time at the intersection of human milk science and neonatology as the benefits of an EHMD in premature infants continue to be demonstrated in study after study,” Professor Zemlin said. “By bringing together the greatest minds in the field at ICHMSI, we can share cutting-edge data and engage in important dialogue that will, ultimately, allow us to improve the lives of more infants with human milk nutrition.”
ICHMSI will include presentations from leading experts in their respective fields:
