UK Dietitian Working To Eliminate Food Deserts In Rural Kentucky


Food deserts are typically described as residential communities marked by limited accessibility to healthy food items; as well as readily available places where people can walk and exercise.  Eastern Kentucky has its share of food deserts and  Dr. Allison Gustafson, endowed professor of dietetics and human nutrition at the University of Kentucky, was awarded an additional grant from the Centers for Disease Control to improve health and nutrition for the residents of Martin County.  She talks research and results in this week's edition of Dr. Greg Davis on Medicine.
