#1: Thursday, June 10, 10:00 - 11:30 AM No Food for Thought: Food Insecurity and Health Outcomes Across the Life Course Cindy Leung, Sc.D., Assistant Professor of Nutritional Sciences, is a nutrition epidemiologist at the U-M School of Public Health. Her research focuses on the experience of food insecurity and its negative influence on health. She is especially interested in using this research to inform the development of federal programs and policies to help alleviate food insecurity and promote good health for vulnerable populations. Dr. Leung earned her M.P.H. from UC Berkeley and her Sc.D. in Nutrition and Epidemiology from Harvard University. Food insecurity has been a persistent social and health concern in the U.S for the past several decades. This presentation will discuss the negative health outcomes associated with food insecurity for various populations across the life course, how national food insecurity has changed as a result of the COVID pandemic, and how our food assistance programs have responded to alleviating food insecurity.
