|Food Environments and Chronic Disease: Is There an Elephant in the Room?
|In recent years, the issue of access to healthful, affordable food has emerged as an important concern that contributes to rising rates of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. Major sources of food such as supermarkets and schools, can help or discourage healthier eating. This talk will examine what is known about food environments and their implications for health and social policy.
