Healthy People (HP) provides a strategic framework for a national prevention agenda and communicates a vision for improving health and achieving health equity. Diet is a key contributor to disparities in many chronic diseases. Therefore, it is important to understand how nutrition-related behaviors contribute to these health disparities. This session will summarize key results from disparities analyses of HP2020 nutrition and weight status (NWS) objectives, review available HP web-based tools for accessing and using these data, and describe NWS objectives for HP2030. These objectives target improving food security, fruit and vegetable consumption, dietary intake; and reducing overweight and obesity. This session will explore disparities among at-risk populations based on race/ethnicity, sex, geography, and socioeconomic status; identify potential public health priorities to reduce chronic disease risk; and offer dietitians and other public health professionals tools for research and education to improve health.
