A research team led by A-HA Research Scientist Heather Keller, PhD, RD, FDC, developed and validated a screening tool for older adults called Nutri-eSCREEN, which stands for Seniors in the Community Risk Evaluation for Eating and Nutrition. The tool assesses older adults’ appetite, eating habits, and changes in weight to identify those who may be at nutritional risk.

In collaboration with Dietitians of Canada, the tool is freely available online through EatRight Ontario, and links to helpful resources.
