The Nutrition Screening Initiative
  The Nutrition Screening Initiative is a broad multi-disciplinary effort led by The American Academy of Family Physicians, The American Dietetic Association, The National Council on the Aging, Inc. and a diverse coalition of over 25 national health, aging and medical organizations. Founded in 1989, the Initiative's goal is to accelerate the incorporation of nutrition screening and intervention into the nation's health care delivery system for older Americans. The Initiative views every point of health care for an elderly person as an opportunity to enhance cost-effective nutrition care. To this end, the Initiative formed alliances with professionals working in nutrition, dentistry, pharmacology, mental health, managed care, home care, and community social services. The Initiative implements a multi-faceted strategy that includes research, professional education, consumer outreach and policy.
