Dr. Schwartz will present a summary of her research study regarding Food Access and Insecurity in Adults with Mobility Disabilities that was completed in August 2020.
People with disabilities experience greater risk of food insecurity compared to people without disabilities. Naomi’s work examined the reasons for this inequality. Specifically, her research looked at the environmental, political, and institutional contexts that impact economic and physical access to food for people with mobility disabilities in Toronto, Canada.
CILT assisted Dr. Schwartz’s research study by promoting and doing community outreach to find and help recruit participants with mobility disabilities.
