Nutrition and Aging: Nutritional Health Inequity

Description

Good nutritional health is critically important for the prevention and management of nutrition-related health conditions as well as the prevention of cognitive and physical functional decline. The achievement and maintenance of good nutritional health is particularly challenging for the burgeoning older population. Many seniors experience nutritional health inequity as a result of gender, race or ethnicity, education or income, country of birth, disability, or geographic location.

We invite authors to submit original research and review articles that seek to improve our understanding of nutritional health inequity in older populations. We invite manuscripts that approach nutritional health at any ecological level from the individual to policy as well as those with application to community practice. We also invite submissions from traditional nutrition-related researchers and practitioners as well as researchers from other fields, such as sociology, anthropology, and planning. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Measurement of nutritional health inequity in diverse populations
  • Underlying risk factors associated with nutritional health
  • Environmental factors associated with restriction/promotion of nutritional health
  • Public health and policy initiatives promoting nutritional health equity
  • Evidence-based interventions that promote nutritional health among at-risk older populations
  • Nutritional, physical, and cognitive health

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal's Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/jar/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/ according to the following timetable:
