South African Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition


The Society is active in the Southern African region, promoting clinical nutrition research and all forms of nutritional education.

ESPEN Web Cast in South Africa:


Together with the ESPEN Committee Members, the local organizers from Norway and Denmark have made an attractive and innovative programme based on Collaboration in Nutrition, both between countries, disciplines and patients, creating networking among participants.

We hope that ESPEN 2016 will be a great opportunity for physicians, dietitians, pharmacists, scientists and nurses dedicated to clinical nutrition and metabolism, to meet and discuss the most recent data in an informal and friendly international atmosphere, building network and strengthen relations and collaboration.
