A recent study published in The Journal of the American Medical Association found that poor diet was the largest risk factor for death in the United States. An ongoing focus on food and nutrition as a cornerstone of health will be necessary to address both the physical and economic challenges associated with these poor health outcomes.

As part of National Nutrition Month, the Bipartisan Policy Center hosted a conversation on food and nutrition, featuring Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. Following Secretary Vilsack’s remarks, a bipartisan panel discussed the current state of nutrition in America and innovative approaches to creating a healthier future.
