Increasing the Understanding of Food Insecurity by Medical Providers and Educators

Almost 13% of the population in Mesa County, Colorado lack access to or have limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate foods. This project develops an intervention that enhances the ability of medical professionals and educators to identify and discuss food insecurity with their clients. The efficacy of the intervention at increasing access to food assistance programs among the food insecure will be tested as part of a future project.
