#ISBNPA2019: Uriyoan Colón Ramos, The Challenges in Addressing Dietary Disparities

Chair: Leslie Lytle



Abstract: Are underserved, minority communities an afterthought in the design of nutrition interventions? Are population-based nutrition programs a last priority in the light of competing economic and political priorities of underserved communities?   In this talk, I will draw on our body of work to describe the team’s experience with present-day challenges to addressing dietary disparities in this nutrition transition era.  I will present empirical findings of our work to bring a Latino immigrant community partners into the forefront of change to support healthful eating behaviors.
