Increase Access to Dietary Supplements and Functional Food

CRN will launch a new multi-year initiative aimed at improving nutrition and health by increasing access to both our products and to information about the connections between supplements/functional food and better nutrition and health. We will develop new programs to provide these products directly to at-risk populations as well as cultivate policy discussions on how to reduce the nutrition and health disparities with better access to nutritional products and to education on nutrition and health. 

BUILDING ON OUR PREVIOUS EFFORTS:
