Feinstein researchers share work with Tufts Nutrition Council

On Friday, October 14, 2016 Dan Maxwell, Anastasia Marshak, and Merry Fitzpatrick discussed recent Feinstein research projects and findings with the Tufts Nutrition Council.

Anastasia discussed findings from an impact evaluation of a program-Community Resilience to Acute Malnutrition (CRAM)-run by Concern Worldwide in eastern Chad since 2011. She described the impact of the CRAM program on the prevalence of acute malnutrition and ideas for future research to investigate possible links between acute malnutrition, water access, and livestock.

Merry described early findings from her PhD study that aims to provide evidence upon which to design interventions to prevent kwashiorkor malnutrition.

Dan gave an overview of the center and all its work to the council.
