Achieving optimal nutrition early in life is fundamental to the prevention of obesity, diabetes, and other nutrition-related health problems. This position is forward-looking and critically needed to achieve ANR's vision for health among Californians. It is expected to strengthen the campus-county continuum by building on mutual strengths.
I strongly endorse the need for this position. There is growing evidence that nutrition in early life is a major factor affecting subsequent health, wellbeing and productivity in adulthood. There is much room for improvement in maternal and child nutrition in California. This Specialist position can play a pivotal role in ensuring that evidence-based, state-of-the-art approaches are used.
