A quality senior nutrition program should be future-focused, client-focused and entrepreneurial-minded. Those running and overseeing quality senior nutrition programs, independent of their size, must understand the role senior nutrition services play within the broader parallel nutrition systems, and they must be prepared to modernize their strategy and operations, strengthening this role in the changing environment.

The following resources support the webinar training “Components of a Quality Nutrition Program: Part 2” presented on February 26, 2013, by Jennifer Fralic, LifeCare Alliance (Ohio); Carlene Russell, Iowa Department on Aging; and Joe Tamiazzo, Sedona Community Center (Arizona).
