Development of a Food Quality Screener to Measure Diet as a Vital Sign

Session Description: This presentation will cover the translational research and development of a new diet screening tool based on the five theoretical and five practice-based factors established by the American Heart Association’s 2020 scientific statement for evaluating dietary screening tools. An equally vital goal in the development of the Food Quality Screener was to go above and beyond by design to accommodate participants with low or limited health literacy. Evidenced-based results on understandability and actionability assessments will also be presented.
