PRLog - Aug. 23, 2012 - The Society of Nutrition Education and Behavior (SNEB) is hosting “Exploring solutions to increase access to nutritious food in ‘food deserts’,” a live webinar on Tuesday, September 25 from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. EST. Sponsored by the Canned Food Alliance, the webinar will address the food needs of at-risk populations with limited access to food stores, and explore potential solutions to improve the situation. Food deserts are regularly in the news, and often serve as a catalyst for discussions about our nation’s approach to nutrition and limitations of food assistance programs. Recently published research on the cost per nutrient of fruit, vegetables and protein sources in various forms will be highlighted.

Presenting during the webinar is Dr. Cathy Kapica, Adjunct Professor of Nutrition at Tufts University and lead author of Canned Fruits, Vegetables, Beans and Fish Provide Nutrients at a Lower Cost Compared to Fresh, Frozen or Dried and Mari Gallagher, Principal of Mari Gallagher Research and Consulting Group and author of the report: Examining the Impact of Food Deserts on Public Health in Chicago, 2006. As a result of attending the webinar participants will learn how to define the concept of ‘food desert,’  what are  some of the barriers and solutions currently proposed to increase access to nutritious food and identify the food forms (fresh, frozen, canned, dried) of common foods that provide the most affordable nutrition.

This webinar is free for members of SNEB. Non-member attendees are $25. Attendees will earn 1 CPEs from the Commission on Dietetic Registration. Register at http://www.sneb.org/events/events.html.
