This session pairs discussion of factors illuminating food insecurity and metrics predisposing at-risk renal populations, such as race and socioeconomic status, with insight on how the dynamics of an infrastructure providing care with early intervention (including early access to medical nutrition therapy) can alleviate the detrimental effects of substandard biochemical outcomes. It provides an in-depth exploration of the connection between food insecurity and health. The session demonstrates how addressing food insecurity in the education and treatment plan for patients with chronic disease can enhance quality of life.
