I welcome you all to the 4th International Clinical Nutrition Congress. After two years of the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been our first gathering in the nutrition community that includes the latest Clinical and Human Nutrition advantages. The focus of our congress is on hospital nutrition with collateral topics on all aspects of clinical nutrition. However, the majority of congress concentrates on Nutrition in Critical Care, Hospital Medical Food, and Obesity and its Treatment which needs special experts’ deliberation specially in the post-COVID area.
In addition to congress, this is a great opportunity to experience the beauty of Mashhad. Mashhad is the city named after the holy shrine of Imam Reza (peace upon him) that millions of pilgrims visit every year. Mashhad is also known colloquially as the city of Ferdowsi, after the Iranian poet who composed the Shahnameh. The city is the hometown of some of the most significant Iranian, Islamic and modern architecture; all in cooperate with different cultures.
I hope you enjoy your time in Mashhad in such a fantastic season, meet your peers, and increase your knowledge.
Dr. Abdolreza Norouzy, Scientific Secretary of the Congress
