As part of its mandate toward a more equitable ecosystem for evidence, Project Evident works to elevate knowledge to advance the sector and change the culture and practices of evidence. Project Evident recently partnered with Factor Health on a white paper that explores opportunities to build the evidence base for nutrition incentive programs. The blog post and white paper below also appear on the Dell Medical School, University of Texas at Austin, blog.

Researchers from Project Evident and Factor Health at Dell Medical School have published a new white paper, Building the Evidence Base for Nutrition Incentives and Health.  The paper explores opportunities for cross-sectoral collaborations in healthcare, food systems, and government programs to improve health outcomes and food system sustainability. It ends by providing specific examples as research priorities and potential pilots to advance aligned goals. 

The white paper was sponsored by Fair Food Network, which pioneered the Double Up Food Bucks (DUFB) program, and supported by the Michael and Susan Dell Foundation.
