The COVID-19 pandemic has further emphasized the need to bolster nutrition research as the disease has challenged the food system and exacerbated food insecurity for millions of Americans. Greater federal coordination and investment in nutrition research could accelerate discoveries across critical areas and positively impact the economy, public health, and population resilience to COVID-19 and new threats.
Join the Bipartisan Policy Center and Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy on July 15 for an important discussion on key strategies to improve national nutrition research and coordination.
