Using Skin Carotenoid Status Technology to Evaluate Community Nutrition Interventions

Friday, October 11 | 12 - 1 p.m. ET | Register

About the Webinar
First, we will give an overview of reflectance spectroscopy technology. Then we will provide evidence of its validity as a proxy for fruit and vegetable consumption in diverse populations. Finally, we will provide several examples of the use of skin carotenoid status as measured by reflection spectroscopy to evaluate the effectiveness of interventions in corner stores, supermarkets, and schools/afterschool and childcare programs. This will include both logistical and practical issues related to use of the reflection spectroscopy to assess skin carotenoid status as a measure of change in vegetable and fruit intake in the field.
