Abstract

Older Americans experience chronic disease at rates well above other segments of our society. Rates of health services use are also 2 to 3 times that of younger age groups. The most rapidly growing segments of America's aging population are also its most nutritionally vulnerable-women, minorities, and those 85 years of age and older. The routine incorporation of nutrition screening and intervention into chronic disease management protocols will lower healthcare services usage, decrease healthcare costs, help relieve the burden of human suffering experienced by older Americans with chronic disease, and improve quality of life for our nation's elders.
