Working together to defeat senior malnutrition...

 

We are a coalition of 60 organizations and stakeholders working to defeat senior malnutrition. Our goals:

  • Achieve the recognition of malnutrition as a key indicator and vital sign of older adult health risk
  • Work to achieve a greater focus on malnutrition screening and intervention through regulatory and/or legislative change across the nation’s health care system

We hope you will join us! Please email info@defeatmalnutrition.today for details.
