The latest Gerontological Society of America (GSA) newsletter, "What's Hot" examines the “Interrelationships between Nutrition and Oral Health in Older Adults”. It is proposed that good nutrition starts with a healthy mouth; the team provides an in-depth review of the literature, analysis, and policy recommendations to promote positive nutrition and oral health outcomes in older adults. Read about how the social determinants of health play an important role in influencing nutrition and oral status, and why interprofessional coordination of care is especially important to addressing barriers and challenges in maintaining good oral health and proper nutrition.
