The Hunger Vital Sign: A New Standard of Care for Preventive Health
The Children's HealthWatch recently released a new Policy Action Brief, "The Hunger Vital Sign: A New Standard of Care for Preventive Health." Hunger Vital Sign measures families’ concerns about and access to food, much the way health care providers check other key vital signs, such as pulse and blood pressure. Healthcare providers, social service providers, community-based outreach workers, teachers, and anyone who works with young children can use the Hunger Vital Sign to identify young children and families who may need assistance.
