Older Adult Malnutrition, COVID-19 and More – March CARE Connections

Good nutrition helps keep the immune system strong. Yet malnutrition among older adults continues to rise.

Read about the development of an evidence-based nutrition behavior change program for older adults in the March issue of CARE Connections, the monthly newsletter from the School’s Center for Aging Research and Education. Here’s an excerpt:

“I asked them, ‘How are you feeling?’ And they said, ‘Oh, I just feel so much better! I feel more energized.’ They talk about these issues and then start doing something. … Making these changes later in life can work well for folks who didn’t have time before they retired to really focus on themselves.”

This month’s CARE Connections also includes a list of local, state, and national resources related to the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and older adult health, CARE’s annual report for 2019, and other news.

Sign up to receive future issues by email on the CARE website.
