The importance of nutrition and the prevention of illness and disease in public health has long been recognized and encouraged in the United States. These issues are now being recognized as key opportunities for pharmacists to engage in improving individual and population health as the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education Standards 2016 report emphasizes the importance of patient-centered care, health and wellness, and population-based care. This chapter starts with an overview of nutritional needs throughout the lifespan. It then discusses specific strategies and programs pharmacists can refer to in order to support healthy lifestyles and public health prevention strategies focused on nutrition.
