FRAC, with support from the AARP Foundation, is helping to improve older Americans’ food security by developing a free, online course and resource materials to educate health care providers on how to screen and actively address food insecurity among adults 50 years of age and older. A leadership team, with expertise in screening for food insecurity and connecting older Americans to nutrition programs, is assisting with these efforts.

*饥饿的生命符号界的实践, convened by Children’s HealthWatch and FRAC, works to facilitate conversations and collective action among a wide range of stakeholders interested in addressing food insecurity through a health care lens. The group seeks to identify research on the connections between food insecurity and health, promote the use of the Hunger Vital Sign to screen for food insecurity, and champion effective interventions to address food insecurity at practice and policy levels. The group includes individuals representing the American Academy of Pediatrics, Feeding America, The Root Cause Coalition, ProMedica, doctors, nurses, anti-hunger advocates, and public health researchers.
