Weight Gain During Pregnancy: Reexamining the Guidelines, a new report from the Institute of Medicine and the National Research Council, recommends new guidelines for weight gain during pregnancy that aim to maximize the benefits and minimize the risks for mothers and infants. The report updates guidelines last set in 1990 and takes into account changes in the American population, particularly the increasing percentage of women who are overweight or obese. The report will be released at a one-hour public briefing on Thursday, May 28.

Details: 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. EDT in the Holeman Lounge of the National Press Club, 529 14th St., N.W., Washington, D.C. Those who cannot attend may listen to a live audio webcast and submit questions using an e-mail form that will be available shortly before the start of the event at www.national-academies.org.
