New Resources from the Food Security Study Team in BC

The Food Security Study is a national community based research study examining the impact of food security on the health of people living with HIV. A key priority for our team is to find ways to share findings with communities and participants involved in the research, as well as those involved with shaping policy and practice.

We were fortunate to receive funding from CIHR to support our team in a knowledge translation project to help share our findings with multiple audiences. Our project has involved presenting two posters at CAHR earlier this year, as well as plans to visit the communities who participated in the study and present findings in person. Now we are happy to be able to share with you two new resources put together by our team in BC that outline key findings and will be distributed through study sites to people living with HIV, interested members of the public, service providers, and policy makers.

Post Cards

As a team, we created the following three post cards. On the front of each post card key findings from the study are described. The reverse of each post card has one of three healthy and simple recipes along with related tips for cutting costs and eating well.
