Identification of strategies to facilitate effective nutrition education among limited resource populations for the prevention of chronic disease; parenting education to prevent childhood obesity; capacity building among community nutrition professionals to lead environmental change efforts to prevent childhood obesity; access to the food supply by low-income populations and factors in the food system impacting access.
Programs conducted through the Food and Nutrition Education in Communities programs of Cornell Cooperative Extension, including the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program--Education. Current effort is focused on Collaboration for Health, Activity, and Nutrition in Children’s Environments, a childhood obesity prevention program. These USDA funded programs are aimed at enabling participants and their families to improve food choices and health in the context of limited resources and associated barriers.
