Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access (IDEA)

Nutrition equity is the foundation for a healthy community and is a key aspect of the IDEA process (inclusion, diversity, equity, and access). A myriad of factors influence nutrition equity, including your neighborhood, access to educational resources and public policy. The ultimate goal is to create optimal health outcomes for all individuals regardless of their race, ethnicity, gender, education or economic situation.
