Recently, the Dietetics Practice-Based Research Network has been expanding to support public health nutrition focused projects. In this session, the speakers highlight two ongoing research projects focused on improving and evaluating point of service nutrition education and on data collection and utilization efforts in collaboration with Feeding America and the Tampa Bay Network to End Hunger. Participants will learn about efforts to develop and test best practice point of service nutrition education interventions in Feeding America food banks to improve food bank client experience, knowledge, attitudes, and self-efficacy for healthy eating behaviors, and about efforts to pilot expansion of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics' Health Informatics Infrastructure (ANDHII) to support the collection and reporting of data to inform food bank efforts around service delivery and food quality in the community.
