Academic Track - Healthy Food, Healthy Environments: Insights on Access, Choice, and Outcomes
This presentation will describe recent research on the neighborhood food environment and the relation between healthy food access and consumption. Drawing on extensive research done in New Orleans and throughout the country, the talk weaves together concerns about the inequities of food deserts, the potential consequences for nutrition and health, and ultimately the environmental impacts of our dietary choices. Approaches to solve these multi-faceted problems will also be discussed.
