This session will present a review of new tools impacting nutrition research. The speakers will present information on ecological momentary assessment (EMA), geographical information systems (GIS), and modeling. EMA can be used to measure nutrition behaviors in real time rather than retrospectively in a subject's natural systems connect data with places/geography and can be used to visualize information such as food access and disease incidence. This can help researchers and practitioners understand where problems exist to create the most impactful interventions. Modeling technology can predict the impact of nutrition interventions which can be used to allocate scarce resources. Each emerging technology will be explained in the context of nutrition research/practice and future applications will be explored.
