Aspen Dialogue: “Advancing Health through Food Security: A Multi-Sector Approach to Address the Disease Burden and Costs of U.S. Food Insecurity on our Health System”

Children’s HealthWatch founder and Principal Investigator, Dr. Deborah Frank, contributed directly to the Aspen Institute final report of the Aspen Dialogue: “Advancing Health through Food Security: A Multi-Sector Approach to Address the Disease Burden and Costs of U.S. Food Insecurity on our Health System.” The report is focused on the group’s framings of the relationship among food insecurity, healthcare costs, poverty and health outcomes. The document particularly emphasizes the role of public policy, the food and healthcare industries, non-profits and foundations, and food security research in making progress on food insecurity-related health complications.
