Description: Iron is well recognized as an essential nutrient needed for growth and development. Iron deficiency has serious consequences and, for this reason, is a public health concern particularly for pregnant women and young children (6-24 months). At the same time, ensuring sufficient intakes of iron must be balanced by avoiding too much iron as there are also consequences to excessive iron intake. The Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is sponsoring an open public meeting titled, “Iron Screening and Supplementation of Iron‐replete Pregnant Women and Young Children,” September 28-29, 2016, at NIH (Bethesda, MD) in collaboration with federal cosponsors. The agenda includes presentations by experts in the field coupled with panel discussions, as well as the opportunity for questions and answers from the workshop audience.

Workshop Goals

• Provide a focus for iron screening and supplementation in the U.S. and developed countries
• Specify data gaps and research needs by:
• Exploring current understanding of iron homeostasis in pregnant women and in young children (6‐24 months)
• Identify the challenges associated with measuring iron status and with screening practices
• Consider emerging issues associated with routine supplementation of iron‐replete pregnant women.

Who should attend? All persons are invited to attend, especially clinical educators, those who develop clinical recommendations, health care providers and researchers.
