New issue of Women’s Health Report

Issue 2 of the Women’s Health Report newsletter is now available. Here is an excerpt from the feature article “Micronutrients and The Older Adult, Part 2: Early Interventions to Prevent Micronutrient Deficiencies” By Vijaya Jain, MSc, MS, RD, CDN. The ongoing increase in the number of older adults worldwide makes addressing their nutritional needs more challenging. Aging is associated with numerous changes and factors that affect the lives of older adults. The nutritional status of older adults is an important determinant of quality of life, morbidity, and mortality. Although good nutrition and healthy lifestyle habits must start early in life to achieve wellness later in life, dietary modifications are often necessary to adjust to the physical and metabolic changes that occur with age. Appropriate and timely interventions are essential for enabling older adults to achieve these goals. Log in to the members section to read this issue and all past issues.
