International Research and Nutrition

RDNs are well-positioned to lead domestic and international efforts to integrate nutrition into economic strengthening, food security, and health programs. Understanding of key integration elements, identification of appropriate opportunities for integration, facilitation of integration, and measurement of the effectiveness of the integrated efforts are skills that will be necessary to play a key role in this work. How are we preparing ourselves as nutrition experts to participate in this work?


  • Explain the necessity of integrating economic strengthening, food security and health efforts within community-based interventions targeting highly vulnerable populations, domestically and internationally.
  • Describe the need for multi-sectoral collaborations to achieve sustainable impact on nutrition outcomes in vulnerable populations.
  • Identify opportunities for RDNs to facilitate multi-sector collaborations and strengthen the inclusion of nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive activities within those collaborations.
