Connect and Converse: Nutrition Education for Older Adults During COVID-19

One of the positive aspects of the COVID-19 public health emergency is a renewed focus on the nutrition needs of older adults, and the importance of nutrition on overall health, wellbeing, and functionality. Providing nutrition education is a key function of senior nutrition programs, especially during this time where there are a lot of conflicting messages in the media about the role of nutrition in health promotion during COVID-19. Join the National Resource Center on Nutrition and Aging (NRCNA) on Wednesday, December 17 for an interactive follow-up conversation to the Emerging Learnings About Nutrition Status, COVID-19, and Nutrition Education in Older Adults ​​​​​​​webinar on December 10. Uche Akobundu, NRCNA Director, will lead a discussion on key messages and strategies to provide up to date information to the seniors you serve. By participating, you will have access unique tools they can use to apply learnings from this conversation within your own organization.

Meals on Wheels America has hosted the National Resource Center on Nutrition and Aging (NRCNA) as part of a cooperative agreement since 2011 with the Administration for Community Living (ACL) ending on December 31, 2020. Please stay tuned for future updates as website changes are coming soon.
