AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

How do local, regional, state, and national retail food environments and policies affect diet and health?

Last Edited by Shannon Zenk

Obesity and poor diet are threats to population health. The food environment and related policies may be major contributors. Longitudinal measures of food purchasing, diet, and health can be linked to environmental/policy data (eg community gardens, changes in convenience store offerings, fast food moratoriums, menu labeling, food taxes/subsidies), and used to identify health effects. Results can help prioritize multilevel preventive interventions. Submitted by Healthy Food Retail Working Group
