Story mapping can be utilized in community and academic settings to display both quantitative and qualitative data while also providing a voice to communities.

Currently, 39% of us are actively trying to eat more plant-based foods. And take a look around us, the Impossible Burger is going national at Burger King later this year and plant-based milks are fast filling grocery shelves. What do we call these eating plans when talking with the public? Some options are provided below. Perhaps Michael Pollan in 2009 got it right: "Eat food, not too much, mostly plants."

Far too many pregnant women, new mothers, and their young children in the U.S. are missing out on the healthy nutrition they need, according to a report released on May 7, 2019 by the Food Research & Action Center (FRAC). Making WIC Work Better: Strategies to Reach More Women and Children and Strengthen Benefits Use features a comprehensive set of recommendations to overcome the barriers that have led to a downward trend in participation in the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), a federally funded program that provides low-income pregnant women, new mothers, infants, and young children with nutritious foods, nutrition education, and improved access to health care.
