Nutrition and Public Health

A section of Nutrients (ISSN 2072-6643).

Section Information

The Nutrition and Public Health section of Nutrients aims to publish high-level, peer-reviewed research on nutrition and food approaches to address diet-related public health issues. This could include multidisciplinary approaches to understanding and modeling the causes of these issues, efforts to promote nutritional well-being and prevent diet-related diseases and conditions, community-based interventions, community-based participatory research, and public policy. We welcome novel, feasible, and practical food and nutrition approaches that address health disparities, leverage technology, as well as multi-level interventions that follow the socio-ecological model. Consistent with the journal Nutrients, we welcome original research articles, reviews, and commentaries. This section should be of interest to public health specialists, epidemiologists, nutritionists, registered dietitians, researchers, policy makers, and advocates.
