In 2017 ACL issued a funding opportunity for the Innovations in Nutrition Programs and Services grant. This grant was designed to support systematic testing and documentation of innovative and promising practices that would enhance the quality, effectiveness, and proven outcomes of nutrition services and programs within the aging services network. The National Resource Center for Nutrition & Aging (NRCNA) is hosting a two-part webinar during which each of the six grantees selected will discuss their innovative nutrition projects. During the webinars, presenters will offer insights about their experience with implementing innovative new services and efforts, discuss promising practices that can increase use of evidence-informed approaches within senior nutrition programs and, provide examples how senior nutrition programs of any size can adapt an innovative programming approach to meet their current operational and staffing needs.
This first part of the webinar will feature the following topics and presenters:
- Technology Interventions to Improve Congregate & Home-Delivery Nutrition Programs for High-Risk Seniors – Lydia Kaume, PhD, RDN, Project Director & Consultant, Missouri Association of AAA
