[Live Event] The effects of poverty on the health of America’s youth

Monday, April 16, 2018 at 12:30pm to 1:30pm

online webinar

For far too many children in the United States, poverty and poor health go hand in hand. The intersectionality of poverty, diet, and health among American youth has long been established, but thankfully promising innovative interventions are now emerging. Join us on Monday, April 16 at 12:30pm EDT for a live online discussion with Tashara Leak of the Division of Nutritional Sciences reviewing the most current data on nutrition and health disparities and discussing ways in which we can inform programs and policies that promote nutrition and health equity. 

In this one-hour online event with health disparities researcher Tashara Leak, you will:

  • Discuss socioeconomic disparities in dietary intake and health outcomes among children and adolescents.
  • Examine intervention methods for improving the diet and health of impoverished youth.
  • Learn how to translate the latest health research into action.

Join us on Monday, April 16 at 12:30pm EDT for Poverty, Nutrition, and Health: Implications for U.S. Children.
