On April 23 2014, the Physicians Committee hosted a briefing on the state of nutrition in the school lunch program.

Ronette Briefel is a senior fellow in Mathematica’s Washington, DC, office. Briefel is currently principal investigator for a random assignment study to improve food security among low-income children in the summer and a Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) breastfeeding policy inventory for the United States Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service; and an evaluation of model communities linking public health and primary care for the Health Resources and Services Administration.
