Screen & Intervene: Addressing Food Insecurity Among Older Adults educates healthcare providers in identifying and addressing food insecurity among older adults, defined here as age 50 and older.

  • The definition, prevalence, and associated risk factors of food insecurity among older adults;
  • The health and nutrition consequences of food insecurity;
  • How to screen for food insecurity among older adults;
  • How to intervene when individuals screen positive for food insecurity;
