Nutrition security has become a topic of research and policy that is receiving increasing attention in the United States. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has advanced policies and programs with the goal to improve nutrition security. The goal of this interactive webinar is to engage participants in advancing the conversation, ideas, and decision-making to further develop nutrition security measures; and identify data assets, gaps, and needs. This webinar will examine current definitions of nutrition security, conceptual frameworks, and proposed constructs, and then go beyond the current status to consider data needs and moving the field forward. The workshop will consider how nutrition security measures and research may inform future public policy. Additionally. we will discuss what data resources public policy researchers need to enable analyses of policies and programs on nutrition security.
