Efforts to promote health through improved diet and nutrition require an understanding of the nutritional ecology that accounts for the intersection of agriculture, food systems, health, disease, and a changing environment across the life span. The ADVANTAGE Project strives to better understand these intersections by addressing the following core questions:
- How are the current realities of climate/environment change (CEC) affecting dietary choices/patterns and relevant aspects of the food system, and what are the implications for specific public health outcomes of interest?
- How can we apply an ecological approach to assessing the nature and impact of these relationships?
- How can we best translate the evidence generated to support dietary guidance to promote health and prevent disease?
To answer these questions, ADVANTAGE will use a multi-disciplinary approach to engage and support agencies and organizations involved in efforts to research, translate, and implement evidence-informed interventions, programs, and policies.
This series of virtual meetings will focus on the following five topics:
- Implications of CEC on priority health outcomes
- Impact of CEC on dietary patterns, attitudes, beliefs, and choices
- Impact of CEC on food systems
- Measures and metrics: an integrated approach to understand the intersection of CEC, food systems, nutrition, and health
- Translation and implementation: data needs and approaches to the translation of emerging evidence to support context-specific, equitable, safe and efficacious interventions, dietary guidance and standards of care in a changing environment
Individuals who need reasonable accommodations to participate in these meetings should contact Amy Buckley at either firstname.lastname@example.org or 571-520-2279 at least 5 days in advance.
