Food travels. From fonio and sorghum in Senegal and Nigeria to pizza and hamburgers from Italy and the United States, there is overwhelming evidence that food is shared across cultures and as it travels across geographies it influences preferences, health and culture. This webinar discusses the nutrition transition in sub-Saharan Africa, its impact on nutrition, food security and the health of the recent African immigrant. It will also address implications for registered dietitians and provide suggestions on improving health in this growing population in the United States.
