Longitudinal Food Insecurity Screening Curriculum for Medical Students

Food insecurity (FI) is defined as a lack of access to enough food for an active healthy life. At Georgetown University School of Medicine, we sought to determine how a longitudinal FI screening curriculum impacts medical students’ knowledge, attitudes, and behavior in screening for FI. These are key components of our curriculum, which has three components completed over three years.
